This is a gorgeous vintage Maru obi with large 'kikko'(tortoise shell) pattern, which is woven.
In between the kikko, kikyo ' Japanese bellflower', 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum), 'nadeshiko' (dianthus), phoenix and butterfly are designed.
Gold foil threads included in the pattern twinkle gently.
Textile is soft silk.
Both ends are closed, but there is no lining inside.
Both ends are fastened rather unevenly, but it is not disturbing for wearing.
Length is 392cm(12'9"), rather short.

Kaikiri lines are on both sides, so it can also be tied by Hikinuki style.

Gold threads at Tare end are coming loose and coming out. ( first photo after the drawing image )
Folding line is relatively light, but it is smudged along. (third photo after the drawing image)
It has some other minor 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.
