This is an impressive vintage Maru obi
with dynamic 'matsu'(pine tree) and crane on cloud pattern, which is woven.
The gold threads woven on the pattern shine glossy.
Textile is exquisite silk and has a soft touch.
It has end mark lines on both ends.
The pattern is set upside down, and it's to be tied in 'hikinuki' style.
It has folding lines from 'tesaki'(narrow end) to tare end.
Not shown on the sheet, it has frays on the corners of tare end and 'tesaki'(narrow end).
There are some other flaws such as discoloration and patinas by ages.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
It has such flaws above, it is still wearable.
Please enjoy its dynamic design which only vintage items have.
