Description
 
An elegant formal obi that is just as lovely worn with a formal kimono as it would be as a decor piece at a special party or event.
The patterning on this obi fieatures four-petaled flowers - bellflowers - in a bright green. The color scheme seems very Irish to us! Gold accent edging and a white background. There are a few spots (see photos) that only slightly detract from the condition. White is so hard to keep clean after 50+ years!

This is a fukuro obi - wide for the entire length, plain on the backside and a patterned design only on the front. There is a one yard "blank" section on the front, as is common with contemporary fukuro obi, where some cost can be saved by leaving it blank where the first wrap layer of the belt portion occurs, since it doesn't show to the public.
