This is an exquisite Maiko's Darari Obi with bold 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum) on rough ocean wave pattern, which is woven with shiny gold threads.
Textile is soft silk.

It has a kamon(family crest) of okiya(geisha house) at Tare end which shows it was worn by an actual Maiko.
The length is 628cm(20'60"), long enough for a Darai knot.
Pattern is on both sides with seams at both edges which shows it is not a Maru Obi.
(about 60 percent of the wrong side is blank)

Folded crease near Tare end is prominently frayed and torn at a part. (sixth photo after the drawing image) (A)
Folding lines on Tare part are also frayed and it is torn for about 1.5cm(0.59in) partially.
Fray and flaws at the corners and both edges are also prominent and there are small holes caused by frays. ( first, second and third photos after the drawing image )
The base is discolored due to its old age, especially the discoloration near the Tare end is prominent. (ninth photo after the drawing image)
It has some other flaws, such as folding lines, as shown on photos.
Please see photos for details.

Because of its heavy usage, it has some flaws, but it is still a very lovely and rare item to enjoy!
