19th century Japanese mixed metal obidome (sash ornament) in a form of a drunken scholar returning home fast asleep on a donkey accompanied by an attendant carrying a large folded umbrella. Did not photograph well. 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.. Superb quality work, fantastic crisp detailing, gilding, silver coat of the scholar, some wear as to be expected. The back and loops appear to be silver (did not test it, but metal has a silver feel). Length 2 1/8 inches.
