This is a graceful vintage Chuya Obi with big bell, 'Tsubaki'(camellia) and 'Ume'(Plum blossoms) design, which is embroidered.
The wrong side has 'Kikkou'(tortoise shell), 'shou-chiku-bai'( auspicious three motifs - pine tree, bamboo and ume blossom ) and seasonable flower pattern, which is embroidered.
Textile is glossy shusu(satin) silk and has soft touch.
Textile is 'Jinken'(rayon) and has light touch.
'Maegara' (front patterned part) is on one side.
When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left (Rotate obi counterclockwise), the maegara will appear.
The obi seems that you can successfully get the design if you decide the position of 'otaiko'(square bow) first, and then tie the narrow belt part after making 'otaiko'(square bow).

It seems like the original owner of this obi enjoyed many fancy bow, so that there are folding lines from 'taresaki'(end of part) to 'tesaki'(narrow end).
It has loose threads of embroidery on the wrong side of 'taresaki'(end of part).
It has some slight stains on the solid part of 'otaiko'(square bow),that will appear when tied, but they seems not to be noticeable. (5th flaw photo)
It has slight discoloration allover, and slight patinas.
It also has some other flaws.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

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