Great purple color - not so commonly found, in our experience - but even more fun are the hand painted images of pudgy ningyo (court dolls).

Note their finely painted faces and delicate features.

Two larger images appear at the wide end of the obi and two others (one on each side of the narrow belt portion) will appear at the front waist.

The original basting stitches are still entact on the edging of the obi - these can be removed before wearing or displaying.

This is a nagoya obi where the width is folded over and sewn together for about two thirds of the length - this is the portion that is wrapped around the waist. There is often a "blank" (unpatterned) section of the belt where it would be wound underneath another layer of obi and therefore never seen by the public. The wider bow section features a large image placed to appear center-back when the obi is tied in the taiko style bow. The design is repeated in a modified version where it would appear at the center front waist.

The backside is plain.



Width=12" (bow) 6" (belt)

Condition: Excellent
