This is a tasteful Shioze Nagoya obi with the design of cards of the one hundred famous poems, which is dyed.
The gold glazing are partially added on the design and they are elegantly shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
There is a dyer's signature on 'tare'(wide end).

*The background color looks uneven in the photos, but actually it is one tone of color.

It has extra lining on the corner of 'taresaki'(end of part) and it is rippled, it seems like the fabric has been shrunken or it has cut and sewn with mistake.
The peeling spots of the gold glazing on 'otaiko'(square bow) and 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) are not so noticeable.(A,C)
The tiny frays (B) appears by the angles of the light, but they will be hidden when you tie.
There are also some other flaws such as slight stain (D), frays on 'tesaki'(narrow end) and 'taresaki'(end of part) and folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

Not on the sheet or photos, but there are 5-6 slight stains about 0.5mm(0.19in) to 1cm(0.39in) near the 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) on Kansai wrap side (Rotate obi clockwise).
They are slight, but will be shown when you tie, so we recommend you to tie with Kanto wrap side(Rotate obi counterclockwise).

There are some flaws, but it is still wearable.
Please enjoy this elegant design!
