This is an enchanting vintage Nagoya obi
with pomegranate and basket pattern, which is vividly embroidered.
By using white and golden threads on the pattern express the real looks.
Textile is sleek shusu silk, and has soft and smooth touch.
Material seems to be blend of silk and jinken(rayon).
Tiny lined smudges(B) can be seen on the left half of tare.
It has frays(A) on the edges as well.
There are a few other small flaws such as snags and stains.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Though it has some flaws due to its old age, this piece seems to have enough strength to tie.
Please enjoy this lovely piece.
