1000 Stitch Belt With Nicely Sewn Rising Sun Design, Slogan "I Pray Your Military Fortunes Are Long Lasting" And 5-Sen Good Luck Coin Sewn To Outside
This beautifully made 1000 Stitch Belt is made from a heavy silk material that is now age-toned to a cream color. The senninbari measures approximately 5.50″ high X 51.5″ long, not including the tie strings. A terrific rising sun design in red knots is displayed across the front-center of the senninbari; a stitch filling each pre-printed red dot. In between the red and white rays are five, red kanji characters for the popular slogan Ki Buun Chokyu or “I Pray Your Military Fortunes Are Long Lasting”. Near the middle of the red sun, a 5-sen good luck coin was afixed with red cotton thread.
This well made, colorful 1000 Stitch Belt example is definitely a cut above the rest. It would display well, wrapped around the waist-shirt of a mannequin or placed inside a frame.
