This is a vintage Chirimen opened Nagoya obi
with a design of butterfly, which is dyed.
Silver glazing is added to the design partly.
Textile is chirimen(crepe) silk and has soft but textured touch.
Its length is rather short, 11'1/4(336cm).
It has prominent discoloration overall by ages.
Silver glazes are irregular.
It seems to be tied as the width of 'Maegara' (front patterned part) to be wide.
When you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), folding lines on Maegara will show.
There are stains on the both sides of maegara, and they are disturbing.
There are other flaws such as patinas.
Please check detail photos.
Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
