This is a vintage Maru obi with graceful white 'Ume' (plum blossom) and 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum) on 'zigami'(paper cut of shape of fan or umbrella etc.), which is dyed.
Shibori(tie-dye), gold glazing, and embroidery are accented in places.
Textile is silk, and it has soft to the touch.
Length is 386cm(12'.7"), rather short.

The pattern is on Tare end, two parts at Otaiko, and Maegara of Kansai-maki (rotate obi clockwise) side.
One of the Otaiko patterns are placed upside down for Hikinuki knot style.
On the wrong side, pattern is on Otaiko and Maegara of Kanto-maki (rotate obi counterclockwise) side.

The base is discolored and has fine patinas due to its old age.
It has prominent discoloration above the Otaiko pattern, and it seems as there is a large stain on the area though is will not show when tied.
Edges are smudged throughout. (sorry no photos)
The 'Ume' (plum blossom) pattern is dyed with pigment, and many are peeling off due to its old age.
It has some other flaws as shown on photos.
Please see photos for details.

Because of its old age, it has some flaws, but it is still a very lovely vintage item.
