This is a Shioze Nagoya obi
with vivid 'Kaede'(maple leaf) pattern, which is dyed on blue background.
The fine gold glazing are applied on the pattern for adding extra gorgeousness to it.
Textile is shioze silk with its characteristic soft and smooth texture.
There are smudges on the both sides and 'taresaki'(end of wide part).
The flaw(A) is a patina.
There are stains on the triangle area.
There are dyestuff and missing color parts around 'maegara' (front patterned part).
When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left (Rotate obi counterclockwise), the other maegara will appear.
There are some other flaws such as relatively prominent folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and sheet.
Although it has such flaws, it is still in wearable condition.
