This is a fabulous vintage Nagoya obi with a design of 'Kamewari', which is embroidered.
'Kamewari' is a Chinese story of telling an importance of life.
It is said that a man broke a jar to help a friend who has fallen into a jar by mistake. (Similar story of Chinese Emperor Shin remains.)
Textile is glossy 'Shusu'(satin) silk and jinken (rayon) blend.
The length is rather short, 332cm(10'9'').
'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.

The relatively prominent stain on otaiko(square bow) is not so noticeable with its design.
The stains on the face of design on 'Maegara' (front patterned part) are noticeable.(A)
It has whitish molds on the tesaki.(indicated as fray)
It also has slight discoloration and patinas on the embroidery work and folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.

Though not indicated, it has 2 whitish stains on the plain part, but they will be hidden when tied.

Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
