This is an elegant Nagoya obi
with large 'genjiguruma' (wheel of royal cart) pattern which is woven on a sparkling background with foil coated threads.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
There are prominent folding lines and wrinkles as it seems to have been well-worn.
Folding lines on the upper otaiko part have frays.
Other frays are seen on the hem as well, giving it relatively strong sense of used overall.
Please check photos and a figure for details.
