This is a vintage ro Maru obi for summer with a flower carts pattern, which is woven.
Silver foil threads are woven on the pattern.
The textile is transparent silk and has soft touch.
The length is rather short, 392cm(12'10") long.
The pattern on the otaiko(square bow) part is designed upside down from kaikiri-line(end mark line) to be tied with hikinuki style.

Though not shown in the figures, the wrong side of the 'te-saki'(one end) has a stump that is often seen at a bolt end.

There are rather prominent stains on the 'otaiko'(the square bow). (refer to the 3rd photo of flaws)
There are also green spots of mold on the 'otaiko'(the square bow). (refer to the 2nd photo of flaws)
It has rather prominent discoloration all over, and has yellow patches(patina).
The silver threads of the pattern is discolored brown.
This piece seems to have been tied in a lot of fancy bows, folding lines are remained to tare end.
There are some other faults, so please check the figure and photos for details.

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