This is a fascinating vintage summer 'monsha'(transparent silk with woven pattern) Maru Obi.
It has 'tessen'(clematis) and 'nadeshiko'(dianthus) on boat design, which is dyed.
It also has woven wave pattern on the base.
Embroidery work is added to the design partly.
Textile is transparent exquisite silk and has smooth touch.
It is relatively short, 396cm(12'12").
Maegara(front patterned part) is only one side.
When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left (Rotate obi counterclockwise), the maegara will appear.
The pattern on otaiko(square bow) part is designed upside down from kaikiri-line(end mark line) to be tied with hikinuki style.


There are noticeable stains on 'taresaki'(end of wide part) and 'otaiko'(square bow).(Second photo of flaws, B,C)
Not shown on the sheet, there are light brown stains and patinas such as (A) or (B), on 'maegara' (front patterned part) of Kanto wrap (rotate obi counterclockwise) side.
It has slight discolorations on 'maegara' (front patterned part) and the blank part. (The last photo)
It has prominent folding lines.
It has some other flaws so please check photos and figure.

Although it has some flaws due to its age, it is still very attractive design which only vintage items have.
