This is an elegant vintage Maru obi with 'kaioke'(a hexagonal container to store clam shells, which are used ancient shell matching game -'kaiawase'), 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum) and 'Ume'(Japanese plum) design, which is embroidered.
The maegara(front patterned part) has beautiful fan design.
The three¼¾¼¥¼¾¼Âdimensional embroidery also has traditional patterns such as 'shippou'(four circles) and 'kikko'(tortoise shell).
Gold and silver foil threads woven in the pattern and base are gracefully shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.

*The otaiko and maegara are only one side.
The wrong side has no maegara and has 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum) design of otaiko, which is designed upside down from kaikiri-line(end mark line) to be tied with hikinuki style.

Not shown on the figure and the photo, it has a tear about 1cm(0.39in) besides a kiku leafe of otaiko.
It has a tear about 2cm(0.78in) between otaiko and maegara.(C)
The folding lines and discolorations are not so noticeable.(2nd imperfection photo)
It has some other small flaws, such as tiny stains near tesaki(narrow end), as shown on photos.
Please check photos and figure.

Unfortunately, it is no longer in wearable condition due to weaken fabric.

Though it has some flaws by ages, the embroideries are still in a very good condition.
Please enjoy its full taste of vintage as handcraft material or interior!
