Early Showa (1930s) Japanese angel skin coral obidome (sash ornament) carved as an incredibly rich chrysanthemum flower. 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, superb quality carving with mesmerizing rhythm of the petal structures, beautiful natural fat piece of coral with hints of pink in some spots, excellent finish and patina. Metal fixture with two loops on the back for an obi cord. Length 1 5/16 inches.
