This is a black nagoya obi
for summer seasons with 'fundou-tsunagi'(jointed weights) pattern, which is embroidered elegantly.
Its embroidery work is very delicate and gorgeous!
Textile is transparent ro silk, and has soft smooth touch.
Whitish stains on the tare end seems like a glue, and it also can be seen on the tesaki part of its wrong side.
Wrong side of 'otaiko'(square bow) has been discolored by patinas.
Please refer the photos and sheet for other flaws and details.
