This is a vintage Maru obi
with royal cart, flying crane, 'kiku'(chrysanthemum), 'matsu'(pine tree) and 'kaede'(maple leaf) pattern, which is woven.
Gold foil threads woven on the background and pattern are elegantly shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The otaiko pattern is set upside down, and it's to be tied in 'hikinuki' style.
Its length is rather short. 408cm(13'4")
It has discoloration by ages overall. Also, patinas can be seen, although it's not mentioned on the sheet and picture.
There are several other flaws such as smudges on edges overall.
Please check detail photos.
However, we hope you enjoy this appealing design of vintage!
