This is a vintage Shusu Nagoya obi with cloud and 'Suisen' (narcissus) on fan design, which is embroidered.
Gold threads woven in the pattern are gracefully shining.
'Maegara' (front patterned part) is on one side.
When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left(Rotate obi counterclockwise), Maegara will show.
The textile is glossy shusu(satin) silk, and has smooth touch.

The flaw near the tare end is discolored warp yarn which will be hidden when tied. (A)
The snag on the embroidery work of the otaiko(square bow) is not noticeable from a distance. (B)
The stitches are coming loose on the 'kinkoma'(golden outlining embroidery work) of the 'Maegara' (front patterned part).
The threads which sew the gold thread might be getting weak. (C)
It has folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

Although not shown on the photo and figure, it has a large stain of about 10cm(3.94in) on the otaiko(square bow) (just above the 'Yukiwa' (snow crystals) design).
It is relatively slight and will be mostly hidden as shown on the photo.
Other fabric is seamed on the wrong side of tare on about 10cm(3.94in) from the end.
Tiny pieces of wood are stuck for about 60cm(1'11.6") from the tare end.
(below the otaiko(square bow) design)

Though it has some flaws, it is still wearable enough.
Please enjoy this tasteful vintage piece!
