This is a vintage Maru Obi.
It is dyed with a butterfly, fan, Torikabuto (a traditional hat for bugaku players), 'kasumi'(hazy mist), 'kiku'(chrysanthemum) and botan(peony) pattern.
'Kinkoma'(thick golden threads) embroidery work is added to the design.
The textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.

The pattern is on five places of the 'tare-saki'(tare end), 'otaiko'(the square bow), 'maegara'(the front design) and the 'te-saki'(one end).
The pattern for 'maegara'(the front design) is on the Kanto wrap (rotate obi counterclockwise) side of the right side, and on the Kansai wrap(rotate obi clockwise) side of the wrong side.

There is discoloration due to its age.
It is frayed in the middle.(refer to the 8th photo of the flaws)
There is a weaving flaw near the 'te-saki'(one end).(A)
There is a small snag in the 'Kinkoma'(thick golden threads) embroidery work.(refer to the 4th photo of the flaws)
There are also folding lines.
For details, please check the figure and photos.

Though it has some faults, we hope you enjoy this tasteful vintage design!
