This is a vintage Maru obi with flowers such as 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum), 'Ume'(Plum blossoms) and "Tachibana" (Japanese green citrus) on flower cart pattern, which is embroidered.
The three dimensional embroidery works in vivid color with gold and silver foiled threads draw peoples attention.
Textile is exquisite soft silk.
The 'tesaki'(end of folded part) and 'taresaki'(end of wide part) were roughly closed by non-professional person.

There is embroidery works only on 'otaiko'(square bow) area on the right side.
The pattern is designed up side down to be tied with hikinuki knot style.
There are three areas where have embroidery works on 'taresaki'(end of wide part), 'otaiko'(square bow) and one 'maegara' (front pattern on belly).

There are loose stitches on 'kinkoma'(golden outlining embroidery work) on 'otaiko'(square bow) and 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) which need to be fixed.
There are discoloration on the background, fine patinas and stains in places due to its age.
There are some other flaws such as folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

Although it has some flaws due to its age, it is still very gorgeous design which only vintage items have.
