This is a graceful vintage Maru obi with fan, 'botan'(peony) 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. 396cm(12ft 11.91in)

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 two design parts on 'taresaki'(end of part) and 'otaiko'(square bow).

It has discoloration and patinas on the base due to its age, and has brownish stains and blueish stains. (A,2nd flaw photo)
It also has some other flaws such as 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!
