This is an exquisite vintage Maru obi with 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum), 'botan'(peony) flower 'kusudama'(round-shaped ornament), swallowtail butterfly and 'tsuzumi'(Japanese drum) pattern, which is woven.
Gold and silver foil threads are shining tastefully.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.

It is embroidered kamon(family crest) of Okiya (geisha dwelling), so it seems to be used by Maiko (who performing songs, dances, and playing the shamisen).
The length is 516cm(16ft 11.15in).
But the length is rather short to tie Darari no obi (long draping sash).

It has discoloration on the base due to its age.
It has some tiny stains.
It has folding lines.
It has missing threads by fray along lines of 'maegara' (front pattern on belly). (A)
It also has some other flaws.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

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