Early Showa (1930s) Japanese pressed glass obidome (sash ornament) depicting several chrysanthemums, the color of the glass wonderfully imitating apple green jadeite. 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. Beautiful design, wonderful quality glasswork, very pleasant finish. Metal fixture with two loops on the back for an obi cord. Diameter 1 1/8 inches.
