This is a Nagoya obi
with a ladle on wood with water streams pattern, which is dyed.
Textile is crepe silk, and it has soft to the touch.
There is a signature of the dyer below the Otaiko pattern.
*Background color may seem uneven on photos, but it is actually one tone of color as seen in HTML code*
There is light whitish smudge above Otaiko pattern (A), but it will not show when tied.
Smudge is also seen on blank part of the narrow belt.
Please see photos for details.
Although it has some flaws as mentioned, it still is a very charming item to wear!
