This is a vintage Maru obi with graceful 'botan'(peony), Matsu (pine tree), 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum) and kikyo ' Japanese bellflower' pattern, which is dyed with Katazome technique on a rather thick silk fabric.
Silver glazing is added for extra elegant look.
Textile is rather thick silk.

The base is slightly discolored and has smudges as shown on photos, but they are rather light. ( first and second photos after the drawing image ) (B)
Three stains on Otaiko pattern are noticeable, but some should blend in with the pattern. (sixth photo after the drawing image)
Stains (A) are light and not so disturbing.
Though not mentioned on drawing image, silver grazing are peeling slightly in places.
Silver glazing at tip of 'botan'(peony) flower petals have come off and the parts have turned rather dingy. (sorry no photos)
It has some other flaws, such as slight folding lines, as shown on photos.
Please see photos for details.

Because the fabric is weak, it is not recommended for wearing.
It must be an amazing handicraft material or an interior display.
