Beautiful piece of Vintage Japanese Obi silk with Silver and Pink Noble Lady design.

This beautiful piece of Obi silk has a woven figurative Noble Lady or Heian Beauty design on a shaded pale pink, silver and black base. The figure of the Noble or Royal Lady is seen from behind as she sits holding an ornamental fan, looking out into a peaceful flower garden. She is dressed in a rich pink and white, many layered floral Heian Period Kimono with her long, flowing black hair trailing behind. The metallic silver thread in the weave gives the surface a lovely glow, making the look of the silk change as the light hits the surface, picking up different aspects of the design, making the silk shimmer and shine beautifully.

The silk is quite stiff to the touch.

This is a beautiful piece of Obi silk, rich and sumptuous, in excellent vintage condition for it's age. As it comes from a vintage Obi it has some surface dirt and creasing on the seams from wear.
