This is a fantastic Shioze Nagoya obi
with 'kikko' (tortoise shell), pine tree and 'kiku' (chrysanthemum) design on folding fan, which is dyed on yellowish ivory colored base.
Embroidery work is partially arranged on the pattern.
Textile is sioze silk, and it has a soft and comfortable smooth touch which is the feature of shioze silk.
There is a stamp of the designer on Tare.
*The background color may seem irregular on photos, but it is actually one tone of color as seen in HTML code.
The stains on the lower 'otaiko'(square bow) can be hidden when tied.
Overall, it has discoloration.
There are some other flaws such as folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
The fabric of Tare and 'tesaki'(narrow end) have been stretched and the back fabric is slightly coming out.
Although there are such flaws above, it is still wearable.
Please enjoy its elegant design.
