This is a Maru obi from Showa Period(1926-1989) .
It is woven with a streams and 'kiku'(chrysanthemum) pattern.
A lot of gold foil threads are woven and shining beautifully.
The textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Both ends are rather roughly sewn, which is not disturbing to wear.

Though not shown in the figures, the gold foil is peeling off in places. (refer to the 5th photo)

There are slight patches of patina near the 'maegara'(the front design), but they won't be seen when you start wrapping the obi from your left tummy to the right(Rotate the obi clockwise).(refer to the 4th photo of the flaws)
There is slight discoloration all over and along the edges, but it is not bothering very much.(refer to the 2nd photo of the flaws)
The smudges on the 'tare-saki'(tare end) are not noticeable either.(refer to the 1st photo of the flaws)
There is rather noticeable streaky discoloration near the 'te-saki'(one end), but it won't be seen when it's on.(refer to the 7th photo of the flaws)
There are some other faults, which are not noticeable such as folding lines.
For details, please check the figure and photos.

Though it has some faults due to its age, we hope you enjoy its beautiful design of a vintage kimono!
