It also has 'sakura'(cherry blossom), 'shou-chiku-bai'(auspicious three motifs - pine tree, bamboo and ume blossom), heavenly-bamboo, 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum), "Tachibana" (Japanese green citrus) and flower circles design, which is embroidered.
Its embroidery is glossy and three dimensional.
Gold and silver foils are added to the design.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.

Its design is for double 'otaiko'(square bow).
'Maegara' (front pattern on belly) is the wrong side.
'Maegara' (front pattern on belly) will not be hidden if tied normally.

The length is rather short. 386cm(12ft 7.97in)

It has relatively slight discoloration due to its age.
It has peeling spots of foil on design.
It has loose threads on embroidery of 'tesaki'(narrow end).
It has a mark that embroidery has removed. (A)
Most of patinas and stains are tiny.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

Although not shown on the figure, two threads of'Koma'(outlining embroidery work) on 'taresaki'(end of part) are about to be miss.
Embroidery of 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) is about to be miss.

Though it has some imperfections, it is in very good condition overall as a vintage.
Please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
