This is a glamorous summer Ro vintage Maru obi with zestful plants and flowers , such as lily and kikyo ' Japanese bellflower', with 'Kaede' (maples) and 'Aoi' (hollyhock) pattern, which is dyed.
Fine embroidery work is added on parts of the pattern.
Kaikiri lines are on both sides and it can also be tied as Hikinuki.
The 'otaiko'(square bow) pattern was dyed facing in both up and down sides on both sides. It allows you to tie both otaiko style and hikinuki style.
The pattern is just like a painting when you open the obi. So, it is not clear what kind of tying style the creator intended.
Maegara are different on both sides.

Textile is summer sheer Ro silk, and it has soft and smooth touch.
Both ends are fastened rather unevenly, but it is not disturbing for wearing.
Length is 400cm(13'2"), slightly short.

It has slight discoloration throughout and both edges are frayed which are not so disturbing. ( first photo after the drawing image )
It has spots of stains but some that shows when worn are faint. (second photo after the drawing image)
It has slight stains near kaikiri line on one side, but they will not show when tied. (A)
It has rather prominent folding lines but not disturbing for wearing. (third photo after the drawing image)
It has some otherminor flaws as shown on photos.
Please see photos for details.

Because of its old age, it has some flaws, but it is still a very lovely vintage item.
