This is a Shioze Nagoya obi
with adorable butterfly motifs, which are dyed.
There are streams and 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum) on the butterfly, which is dyed with gold glazing.
Textile is shioze silk with its characteristic soft and smooth texture.
There are white shiny areas on 'otaiko'(square bow) and 'maegara' (front patterned part) which are caused by fray.(They are marked as fray on the sheet.)
They are faint and not that noticeable.
There is discoloration throughout.
There are some other flaws such as folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and sheet.
Although it has such flaws, it is still in wearable condition.
Enjoy wearing it as everyday clothes.
*The background color may seem irregular on photos, but it is actually one tone of color as seen in HTML code.*
