Item Details
Location:
Japan
Date:
Taisho (1912-1927)
Description:
An unusual silk fukuro obi - the Chinese inspired roundels are reminiscent of that faviored in earlier generations. Instead of brocade, we have a simple weave of 'faux-brocade'. The three central roundels have added silk and metallic embroidery added. Very good condition, with a few minor imperfections, including short section of loose embroidery. 12" width x 143" length (gallery image shows only half of the obi). This may have been a geisha or theatrical obi, as it does not conform to the standard wear at the time.
Price:
500
