This is a vintage Nagoya obi with an embroidered shishi(Chinese lion) pattern, which is elaborate.
It is also embroidered with a kumihimo(kimono braid) pattern on the 'tare-saki'(tare end), and a sasa(bamboo leaves) pattern on the 'maegara'(the front design).
The eyes of the shishi(Chinese lion) are depicted with celluloid.
The textile is jinken(rayon), and has soft touch.
The length is rather short, 323cm(10'59').
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 is discoloration and patches of patina all over due to its age, which is noticeable.(refer to the 2nd and 4th photos of the flaws)
There is a streaky stain, which is reflecting to the wrong side, but it will not be show in the 'otaiko'(the square bow).(A)
The threads of the embroidery work is partly loose.(B)
There are also snags in the 'maegara'(the front design).(refer to the 5th photo of the flaws)
There are also slight brown stains in places on the 'te-saki'(one end).
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 design of a vintage kimono!
