This is a fabulous vintage Maru obi with 'tsuzumi'(Japanese drum), drum, 'uchide no kozuchi'(miracle mallet) and kakuremino(a cloak of invisibility) design, which is embroidered.
It is woven clouds pattern.
Textile is exquisite silk and has light touch.
It has embroidery designs on 'taresaki'(end of part), 'otaiko'(square bow) and 'tesaki'(narrow end).

It has stains and patinas on white parts of 'otaiko'(square bow),that may be rather disturbing. (7th, 8th imperfection photo)
It has thin parts caused by frays on embroidery parts.
And it has missing threads by fray. (A,B,D)
Gold foil threads are coming out from 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) of Kansai wrap(rotate obi clockwise) side.
They are rather disturbing. (9th imperfection photo)
Embroideries near 'tesaki'(narrow end) are unpicking. (E)
They could be hidden when you tie it.
Embroideries on 'taresaki'(end of part), 'otaiko'(square bow) and 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) are relatively good condition.
But 'Kinkoma'(golden outlining embroidery work) near 'tesaki'(narrow end) are missing.
It has slight discoloration on 'taresaki'(end of part),'otaiko'(square bow) and embroidery allover due to its age.
It also has some other imperfections such as folding lines.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

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