This is a Nagoya obi made by Shohei Hori.
The line pattern with gold foil is shining elegantly on the black base.
The textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
There is a stamp of the designer's signature on

There are folding lines to the 'otaiko'(the square bow), but those in the 'otaiko'(the square bow) are relatively slight. (refer to the 1st photo of flaws)
The 'tare-saki'(tare end) is frayed and became white.
For details, please check the figure and photos.

Though not shown in the figure, there are peeling spots of the gold foil on the 'otaiko'(the square bow), and 'maegara'(the front design).

If you do not mind these faults, it still can be worn.
We hope you enjoy this elegant fashion!
