This is a graceful vintage Maru obi with silhouette of 'Kaede'(maple leaf) and 'Ume'(Plum blossoms) and colorful 'kiribame'(technique which cuts off some cloth, inserts in another cloth and constitutes a pattern or dyed) like fabric design.
It has 'matsu'(pine tree), 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum), 'Ume'(Plum blossoms) and butterfly design, which is embroidered finely.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
It is woven lattice pattern on sliver foil base.
'Maegara' (front patterned part) is on one side.
When you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to right(Rotate obi clockwise), Maegara will show.
Gorgeous embroidery is added to the design on 'taresaki'(end of part), 'otaiko'(square bow) and 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) of the right side, and on 'taresaki'(end of part) and 'otaiko'(square bow) of the wrong side.

Although not shown on the figure, it has two loose threads of 'Kinkoma'(golden outlining embroidery work) on 'otaiko'(square bow), and has five loose threads on 'maegara' (front pattern on belly).
They are almost tiny, but it needs to repair before you tie.
It also has some other flaws such as slight discoloration on the base and 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!
