This is a tasteful vintage Maru obi with autumn flowers such as maple leaves, 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum) and so on and genjiguruma(wheel) on 'kanzesui'(swirl) pattern, which is dyed.
Elaborate embroidery works are added to the 'otaiko'(square bow) pattern partly.
Textile is soft silk.
It has kaikiri lines(end mark line) on the both ends.
It is relatively short, (378cm/12'5").
The 'tesaki'(end of folded part) and 'taresaki'(end of wide part) were roughly closed.

There are discoloration, small stains and patinas throughout due to its age.
There are embroidery works on the 'otaiko'(square bow) pattern on both sides.
The right side 'otaiko' is designed up side down to be tied with hikinuki knot style. This 'otaiko' has a horizontal line shape faint black stain on it.
(refer to the 'otaiko' photo and 4th flaws photo)
The wrong side 'otaiko' is designed for double layer otaiko. There are loose stitches of the 'kinkoma'(golden outlining embroidery work).(F)
Since it is relatively short, whether you can actually tie with double layer otaiko depends on your body shape etc.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.

Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
