This is a graceful vintage Maru obi with 'tsuzumi'(Japanese drum), "Kiri" (paulownia), phoenix, book, 'matsu'(pine tree) and 'sakura'(cherry blossom) design, which is embroidered.
A lot of gold foil thread is added to the fine embroidery design.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The length is rather short. 384cm(12ft 7.18in)

The pattern is designed up side down to be tied with hikinuki knot style.
'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 right side has two design parts on 'otaiko'(square bow) and 'maegara' (front pattern on belly).
The wrong side has three design parts on 'taresaki'(end of part), 'otaiko'(square bow) and 'maegara' (front pattern on belly).

It has discoloration and patinas on the base due to its age.
It has rather big stains on 'otaiko'(square bow) and 'maegara' (front pattern on belly). (2nd flaw photo)
Although not shown on the figure, the fabric of 'otaiko'(square bow) seems to be shrunk.
It also has some other flaws such as 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!
