This is a Shioze Nagoya obi
with a design of butterfly, which is dyed.
Embroidery work and gold glazing are added to the design.

Although not shown on the photo and figure, it has smudges throughout both edges.
It is discolored slightly from the tare end to upper otaiko.
The snag(A) on maegara(front patterned part) is small so not prominent.
There is a liner stain on otaiko, but it is slight so not noticeable.
Besides it has some other flaws such as a folding line.
