Early Showa (1930s) Japanese lacquer obidome (sash ornament) made out of layered lacquer slab with it sides sloping at an angle, so numerous multicolor layers can be seen. 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 quality work, very pleasant finish, two metal loops on the back for an obi cord. Length 1 11/16 inches.
