This is a tasteful Tsume tsuzure Nagoya obi with yellow color flower on 'kikko' (tortoise shell) design, which is woven.
Gold and silver foil threads are shining on the bold design.
Textile is tsuzure silk, and has rather stiff touch.
It also has "Hatsurikou" (small gap in the boundaries of colors), which is the distinctive feature of Tsume tsuzure weave.
'Maegara' (front patterned part) is on one side.
When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left (Rotate obi counterclockwise), the maegara will appear.

Although not shown on the figure, it has many and brownish patinas on light blue color design parts between 'otaiko'(square bow) to 'maegara' (front pattern on belly). (photo of design)
It has a brownish stain on upper 'otaiko'(square bow). (1st flaw photo)
It has a blueish ink flaw on the edge of 'maegara' (front pattern on belly).
It has discoloration on the base due to its age.
It also has some other flaws such as rather prominent folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

If these flaws do not bother you, it could be still worn.
Please enjoy its tasteful design!
