This is a vintage Nagoya obi with 'botan'(peony), 'kikyou'(Japanese bellflower), branched ume(Japanese apricot), orchid and classical pattern such as 'kikko'(tortoise shell) and 'shippou-tsunagi'(interlocking circles) on 'jigami'(fan shape) pattern, which is embroidered.
'Kinkoma'(golden outlining embroidery work) and 'ginkoma'(silver outlining embroidery work) are added to the colorful design.
Textile is glossy 'Shusu'(satin) silk and has smooth touch.
It has woven 'hanabishi'(flower diamonds) pattern on the base.
It is relatively short, 336cm(11'02'').
Maegara(front patterned part) is only one side.
When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left (Rotate obi counterclockwise), the maegara will appear.
(Actually, there was an embroidery of orchid on Kansai wrap(rotate obi clockwise) side, but it is all unstitched.)

(A) on 'otaiko'(square bow) is a partial discoloration, not a stain.
(A) is prominent but there are quite slight discolorations overall on the the white part of the pattern.(B)
Patina(C) is quite tiny.
(D) is a trace of an embroidery.

Not shown on the sheet and in the photos, corners of both ends are frayed a little.
It has 5cm(2.0in) loose stitches on the edge of 'maegara' (front patterned part).

Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
