This is a vintage Maru obi
with classy 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum) Tatewaku (waving line)and bold Noshi
pattern, which is dyed.
Fine embroidery work is added on parts of the pattern.
Textile is soft silk.
Otaiko pattern is placed upside down so the obi must be tied by Hikinuki.
Patinas and discoloration on the pattern is faint.
Stains and dyestuff stains on the blank parts are not disturbing.
It is in very good condition overall.
Please see photos for details.
Although it has some flaws as mentioned, it is still in wearable condition.
