This is an elegant vintage summer Ro Nagoya obi
with frog design, which is embroidered on the 'somewake'(dyed with separate colors) background.
The lively expression of frogs is so charming.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
'Maegara' (front patterned part) is on one side.
When you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), Maegara will show.
It has prominent discoloration from the tare end to the upper otaiko(square bow) and both edges of 'Maegara' (front patterned part).
It also has patinas and smudges throughout the edges.
The stains on otaiko(square bow) and 'Maegara' (front patterned part) are bothering.
It has some other flaws such as folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its cute design of a vintage!
