This is a glamorous vintage Maru obi
with crane circle, 'kiku' (chrysanthemum) and 'shou-chiku-bai' (auspicious three motifs - pine tree, bamboo and ume blossom) on fan pattern, which is woven.
The classical design is gorgeous and impressive.
The gold threads woven on the pattern shine elegantly.
Textile is exquisite silk and has a soft touch.
Its length is rather short, 12'11" (394cm).
The pattern is set upside down, and it's to be tied in 'hikinuki' style.
Overall, it has patinas.(the 3rd flaw photo)
Not shown on the sheet, it has missing threads on the edges caused by fray.
There are some other flaws such as folding lines (no photos) and overall, discoloration.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Even though it has such flaws above, please enjoy its glamorous design which only vintage items have.
