This is a graceful vintage Maru obi with gourd, 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum), 'Kaede'(maple leaf), 'shippou' (interlocking circles) 'Hanabishi'(flower diamonds) and 'Kikkou'(tortoise shell) design, which is embroidered finely.
'Kinkoma'(golden outlining embroidery work) and 'Ginkoma'(silver outlining embroidery work) are added to the vivid and three dimensional embroidery design.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
It is woven checkerboard pattern on the base.
The pattern is designed up side down to be tied with hikinuki knot style.
(The designs of 'otaiko'(square bow) and 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) are on only the right side.)
'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.

It has many loose threads on 'Kinkoma'(golden outlining embroidery work) and 'Ginkoma'(silver outlining embroidery work), so it needs to repair before you wear. (5th flaw photo)
It has some stains on 'otaiko'(square bow), and has missing threads by fray(A) on the weaving yarn of design.
It also has some other flaws such as discoloration on the base.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

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