This is a vintage Nagoya obi
with beautiful four seasons flowers on butterfly pattern, which is embroidered.
The dyed stripes and diamond lattice on the background set the pattern off.
Textile is exquisite soft silk.
There is only one 'maegara' (front patterned part) which will be shown when you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi counter clockwise).
It is relatively short.(12'11"/393cm)
The 'tare'(wide end) is long enough to make double layers.
There are noticeable patinas due to its age.
There is slight discoloration throughout.
There are patinas and uneven color on 'otaiko'(square bow).
There are stains on 'taresaki'(end of wide part), noticeable stains on upper 'otaiko'(square bow).
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.
Although it has some flaws due to its age, it is still very charming design which only vintage items have.
Enjoy wearing the tasteful design.
