This is a vintage Maru obi
circle and 'housouge'(large karabana flower) on 'shippou-tsunagi'(jointed four circles) pattern, which are dyed.
God and silver couching are applied partially.
The pattern is set upside down, and it's to be tied in 'hikinuki' style.
Textile is rather crisp silk.
Tiny dyestuffs can be seen in places. (the 4th flaw photo)
Smudges of both edges are not so bothering. (*It is indicated as diagonal stripe mark on the figure.)
There are other flaws such as rather noticeable streaky stains (A).
Please check detail photos.
It has several flaws, but it still can be tied as a vintage Obi!
Please enjoy its retro design of vintage!
