This is a vintage background with phoenix
and 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum) on clouds pattern, which is embroidered.
The fine embroidery works which were done a stitch by a stitch are three dimensional and beautifully glossy.
Textile is soft and sleek satin silk.
There is only one 'maegara' (front patterned part) which will be shown when you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise).
Although it's not mentioned on the sheet and photo,
there are small white mold on the plain area of lower 'otaiko'(square bow) and both sides of the narrow belt part.
There is discoloration throughout. The one on the pattern is noticeable.
There are some other flaws such as folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.
Although it has some flaws due to its age, it is still very charming design which only vintage items have.
