Late Meiji (1890s to 1910s) Japanese pink coral obidome (sash ornament) with carved decoration of chrysanthemums. Obidome is worn on an obi cord that holds the obi sash together, is the only type of jewelry worn by Japanese women on formal occasions, and could serve as netsuke as well.. Clever design, wonderful detailing, very beautiful natural coral, nice finish and patina. Metal fixture with two loops on the back for an obi cord. Length 1 1/4 inches.
