This is a vintage Nagoya obi with a design of large waves, kaioke(a hexagonal container to store clam shells, which are used for the ancient shell matching game - 'kaiawase'), and seasonal flowers such as 'kiku'(chrysanthemum) and botan, which is embroidered.
The 'Kinkoma'(thick golden threads) embroidery work is added to the design on the black base.
The textile is glossy rinzu silk and has soft touch.
The '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.

There are seams on the 'te-saki'(one end) and the wrong side of the 'otaiko'(the square bow), and another fabric is attached.
There are tiny patina on the 'otaiko'(the square bow) and the embroidery work on the 'maegara'(the front design).(refer to the 3rd photo of flaws)
The embroidery work has partly frayed.(refer to the 7th photo of flaws)(indicated as coming loose in the figure.)
There is fray of threads woven on the base.(A)
Though not shown in the figure, there are peeling spots of silver threads on the 'otaiko'(the square bow) and 'maegara'(the front design).
For other details, please check the figure and photos.

Though it has some flaws, we hope you enjoy this brilliant design of vintage!
