Unusual Japanese obidome (sash ornament) with striped red agate top inlaid with tiger eye bamboo leaves. 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, perfect inlay, very beautiful stones, excellent finish and patina. Metal back with two loops for an obi cord, marked SILVER, but looks more like chrome plated. Length 1 3/8 inches.
