This is a graceful vintage Maru obi with stream, "Fuji" (wisteria), 'shippou' (interlocking circles) 'Hanabishi'(flower diamonds) ,'Genjiguruma'(wheel of court carriage) and 'sakura'(cherry blossom) on book design, which is embroidered.
Shining gold and silver foil threads are added to the fine embroidery work.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
It is woven checkerboard pattern on the base.

The right side has 4 designs on 'taresaki'(end of part), 'otaiko'(square bow), the wrong side of 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) and 'tesaki'(narrow end).
The wrong side has 3 designs on 'taresaki'(end of part), 'otaiko'(square bow) and the wrong side of 'maegara' (front pattern on belly).
(The wrong side of 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) is rather small design.)

The pattern is designed up side down to be tied with hikinuki knot style.
(The photo shows upside down.)
It has missing threads by fray on embroidery of 'taresaki'(end of part). (1st flaw photo)
It has tiny peeling spots of silver foil thread on the right side of 'maegara' (front pattern on belly), that are not so noticeable. (6th flaw photo).
It has discoloration due to its age on embroidery part and allover.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

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