This is a vintage Nagoya obi
with graceful 'Botan'(peony) motifs, which is embroidered.
The graceful pattern glows very well on the vivid color background.
Textile is exquisite soft and glossy plain silk.
There is only one 'maegara' (front patterned part).
When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left (Rotate obi counterclockwise), the maegara will appear.
There is relatively noticeable discoloration throughout.
There are smudges on the both sides.
There are stains in places like 'otaiko'(square bow) area.
For the details, please refer to the photos and sheet.
If you don't mind those flaws, it is still in good condition to wear.
Although it has some flaws due to its age, it is still very charming design which only vintage items have.
