This is a vintage Nagoya obi
with dragon and 'Shishi'(lion) on clouds pattern, which is woven.
The woven gold and silver foiled threads elegantly shine.
Textile is relatively stiff silk and jinken (rayon) blend.
It is relatively short.(10'8"/326cm)
(B) is snags.
There are frays in places on the foiled threads on the edges. There are more frays on the edges which are marked on the figure.
The tear on the figure is also fray.
Those check marks on the figure are snags. (refer to the 4th flaws photo)
There are some other flaws such as white mold.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.
*It has slight smell of insect repellent.
Unfortunately, it maybe no longer in wearable condition due to the weaken fabric.
However, it is still dynamic design which we would like you to enjoy.
It must be a good handcraft material or interior display.
