Japanese silver mounted Satsuma buckle painted with a traditional pavilion besides the water's edge with mountains in the distance, Meiji period, circa 1910. The painting on Satsuma is very delicate and condition excellent. All obijime are new condition. 1 5/8" x 2 3/16" x 3/16" thick (4.3cm x 5.5cm x 0.7cm)

This is one half side of a pair that can be used as an accent piece (necklace, belt, etc). We added a decorative string, obijime (a tie for Japanese obi) to make this into a soft belt. Our photos show three different obijime ties for you to choose from.

#1 tie (photo #1,2,3) is pretty stiff (it is supposed to softened as you use it) and skinny. 7/16” x 59.5” long (1cm x 151cm)

#2 tie (photo #4,5,6) is soft, skinny and easy to use. 7/16” x 56 ¾” long (1cm x 144cm)

#3 tie (photo #7,8) did not show up well in the photos but it actually matches well and easy to tie. The tassels on each side are still wrapped in plastic. 5/8” x 62” long (1.4cm x 157.5cm)
