This is a tasteful antique Maru obi
around Meiji Period(1868-1912) with fine 'karabana'(imaginary flower in China) pattern, which is woven.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Its length is rather short, 12'5"5/8(380cm).
Although not shown on the figure, there is a brownish liner stain on tare end, but not so prominent because it blends in with the background.
There are frayed parts on corner of tare end and 'tesaki'(narrow end), and bothering a little.
Discoloration is not so noticeable.
There are other flaws so please check detail photos.
Unfortunately, it is no longer wearable due to the fabric is getting weak.
However, we hope you enjoy its elegant pattern!
