This is a fabulous vintage Nagoya obi
with aoi and 'shippou-tsunagi' (interlocking circles) on stripe design, which is woven.
Gold and silver threads woven in the pattern are gracefully shining.
Textile is silk and jinken (rayon) blend and has relatively crisp touch.
The length is rather short.127.95in(325cm)
Although not shown on the photo and figure, it has foil peeling spots on the pattern and will be noticeable when tied.
It has smudges on both ends and throughout the edges.
It has discoloration overall.
It has some other flaws such as tiny sngas.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
It seems to be not suitable to tie, because the fabric is getting weak by ages.
Please enjoy this retro design of a vintage.
