This is a graceful vintage Maru obi with 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum), 'sakura'(cherry blossom), wave and tomoe-mon(similar to two commas, one of the Japanese traditional motifs) on 'jigami'(fan shape) pattern, which is woven.
Gorgeous embroidery is added to the pattern of 'taresaki'(end of wild part) and 'otaiko'(square bow).
Textile is glossy silk and has soft touch.
The pattern is designed up side down to be tied with hikinuki knot style.
(The embroidery on 'taresaki'(end of wild part) is only wrong side, and the embroidery of 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) is both side.)

It has discoloration on the base due to its age, and has tiny stains.
The stitches on embroidery of 'otaiko'(square bow) and 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) are coming loose.
And some threads are almost removed.(A,C)
It also has some other flaws such as rather prominent folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
