This is a vintage Nagoya Obi.
It is reversible and each side has different patterns.
It has a design of two pigeons embroidered on the one side, and circle, flying crane and flower pattern embroidered on the other side.
The textile is exquisite black glossy shusu silk, and has soft touch.
The pattern on both sides will be seen when you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to the left (Rotate obi counterclockwise).
(only one pigeon might be seen when it's on)
The sleeve length is rather long, 388cm(12'9").

The 'maegara'(the front design) will be appeared when you tie this obi after making 'otaiko'(the square bow) and 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) first.

There is slight discoloration in the pattern on both sides.
Though not shown in the figures, it is frayed and torn a little near the 'maegara'(the front design).
It has another whitish frayed spot near the 'maegara'(the front design) of the side that has the pigeon pattern. (refer to the 3rd photo of flaws) (indicated as stain in the figure)
There are some other faults such as folding lines, so please check the figure and photos for details.

Though it has some faults due to its age, we hope you enjoy its tasteful vintage design!
