This is a graceful Maru obi
with flower circle such as 'ume'(Japanese plum), 'kiku'(chrysanthemum) and 'Tachibana'(Japanese green citrus) on checkered pattern, which is woven.
Gold and silver foil threads woven in the pattern are elegantly shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has rather crisp touch.
Its length is rather short, 12'10"3/8(392cm).
*The real base color is relatively more reddish than the photos.
Although not shown on the photo and figure, lots of woven threads on the edges are missing by fray.
It has discoloration and patinas overall by ages.(1st flaw photo)
The stitches on edge are coming loose.
There are other flaws such as stains(5th flaw photo) and folding lines.
Please check detail photos.
Unfortunately, it is no longer wearable due to the fabric is getting weak.
However, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
