This is not a whole Obi
Beautiful panel from a Vintage Japanese Wedding Fukuro Obi with Gold Thread.
This item is high quality vintage pure silk fabric carefully un-picked from a Japanese Fukuro Obi which is a formal sash worn by women at wedding or other ceremonies.
This beautiful piece of sumptious wedding Obi silk has a rich and detailed figurative landscape design. Groups of Noblemen and Women, dressed in Heian Period costume, relax in the garden of a rich country house. Clouds drift across the scene. The piece is beautifully detailed, woven in rich metallic gold and softer pastel shades of blue, orange, brown and green on a gold base. The gold foil in the threads of the weave of the design gives the piece a wonderfully rich sheen and shimmer as the light hits the surface of the silk.
This is a beautiful little piece of vintage silk in excellent condition
I have not ironed the piece.
Measurement: Total size is approximately 11.5ins wide by 19ins long.
