This is the finest Maru obi with elaborate embroidery and dye work. The beautiful sailing ship in the sea is on one side of the obi and the other side has dramatic waterfall in the valley with the bridge. The colored leaves can be seen, so it must be an autumn scenery.
Please check the details of the both ship and the autumn scenery. The fine embroideries and the dye work make this obi exceptional.
The side with the ship has the smaller ship which comes in front when the obi is worn anti-clockwise. The main pattern is set upside down, and it's to be tied in 'hikinuki' style.
The other side also has the smaller pattern to come in front- this side can be tied clockwise.

Textile is exquisite tsuzure silk.
The chart shows many flaw such as folding lines and smudges but in spite of the age, the obi is in quite good condition and wearable. The stain A (looks like caused by pen) will not show when the obi is worn.

Please check detail photos.
If you see the obi in person, you will be overwhelmed by the awesome work of embroidery and dye. The waterfall goes into the sea - the obi is a piece of dramatic painting.
Please savor the `gem' from good-old days. We think the obi is from Taisho period which was the art blooming era.
