This is a graceful vintage Maru obi with flower boat design of such as 'Botan'(peony), 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum) and clematis, which is embroidered.
The large dyed design on its base shows so glamorous.
The 'sakura'(cherry blossom) motif near 'tesaki'(narrow end) is charming.
Gold and silver threads woven partially are gracefully shining.
Textile is glossy exquisite silk with woven small aoi pattern, and has smooth touch.

The pattern is designed up side down to be tied with hikinuki knot style.
Both ends are roughly sewn, but not disturbing for wearing.
When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left(Rotate obi counterclockwise), Maegara will show.

The kaikiri lines(end mark line) are largely coming loose.
(refer to the 1st flaws photo)
The tiny hole on the otaiko(square bow) is not so noticeable, but the one near the 'Maegara' (front patterned part) is rather large.
(B/refer to the 5th flaws photo)
Light brown patinas are concentrated on the white dyed part.
(refer to the 6th flaws photo)
(A) is also loosen stitches, but quite tiny.
Other flaws are not so noticeable.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

Though the hole near the 'Maegara' (front patterned part) is a little bothering, please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
