with 'Karabana' (imaginary flower in China) on circle design, which is dyed and embroidered.
Gold outline is added on the refined design and fine embroidery work is added on the main parts.

It has folding lines and discoloration overall, and especially around the otaiko(square bow) is discolored.
The fray (photo A) is slight.
It has noticeable stain on the 'Maegara' (front patterned part).(B)
