"Fierce Hawk" Boy's Kimono

This is a vintage Japanese boy's formal kimono, called a miyamairi, and is a ceremonial garment draped over an infant boy for his first visit to the shrine with his parents and grandparents to thank the gods for safe delivery of the child. Miyamairi typically have dark bands at top and hem with a light band across the middle, and in that middle space is a painted design that reaches across the back and sleeves. See below for a cute video featuring kids wearing traditional kimono.

Rich cobalt blue across the top and hem, with a cream background in the center. A nested diamond jacquard fabric - silk or silk blend?

The featured element is the large hawk on the back, with couched edging around the head and gold leaf accents in many of the imagery.

Three family crests embroidered in gold across the back.

Some light blemishes on the front collar, see photo.
