This is a vintage Nagoya obi with glamorous butterflies on lattice pattern, which is dyed and embroidered.
The fine embroidery works which were done a stitch by a stitch are three dimensional and beautifully glossy.
Textile is exquisite soft and glossy silk with damask effect(rinzu) of 'kikko'(tortoise shell) 'Hanabishi'(flower diamonds) pattern.
It is relatively short.(10'10"/330cm)

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 clockwise).

Although it's not mentioned on the sheet and photo,
there is a small (0.07"/2mm) hole on the 'tare'(wide end), 2'6"(75cm) from 'taresaki'(end of wide part).
There are some spots where gold and silver foils have come off on 'otaiko'(square bow) and 'maegara' (front pattern on belly).

There are discoloration and patinas (refer to the 6th flaws photo) throughout.
The one on 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) is noticeable.
There are more stains on 'otaiko'(square bow) and 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) than those were
mentioned on the sheet.

Although it has some flaws due to its age, it is still very charming design which only vintage items have.
