This is a tasteful Nagoya obi with 'hana karakusa' (flower arabesque) of 'botan'(peony), "Kiri" (paulownia) and "Tachibana" (Japanese green citrus) on diamond design, which is embroidered from Showa period (1926-1989).
'Kinkoma'(golden outlining embroidery work) outline is added to the vivid design.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
It is woven 'matsu'(pine tree) leaf pattern on the base.
'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 length is rather short. 337cm(11ft 0.68in)

It has discoloration on the base due to its age.
Although not shown on the figure, it has tiny patinas.
The flaw(B) is like lint that is tiny and not noticeable.
The stains on upper 'otaiko'(square bow) will be hidden if tied neatly.
It has brownish stains and reddish stains(D) next to 'maegara' (front pattern on belly), that are rather disturbing.
It also has some other flaws such as folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

Though it has some flaws, please enjoy its tasteful design!
