This is a tasteful vintage Fukuro obi with design of 'shou-chiku-bai'(auspicious three motifs - pine tree, bamboo and ume blossom) and cranes on 'Matsukawa-bishi'(pine bark diamond), which is woven with Tsume tsuzure technique.
The vibrant design and the gold foiled threads are beautiful.
The 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) is on one side and the design is on the Kanto wrap side(Rotate obi counterclockwise).
The pattern is designed up side down to be tied with hikinuki knot style.
It has special kind of comfortable and medium touch of Tsume tsuzure silk.
It also has "Hatsurime" (small gap in the boundaries of colors), which is the distinctive feature of Tsume tsuzure weave.
Lining is not added inside.
It is relatively short, 404cm(13ft 3.06in).
Both ends are roughly sewn, but not disturbing for wearing.

It has discoloration and some patinas due to its age on the base and it has irregular colors.
It has the folding lines and blackish smudges allover and they are noticeable.
Especially, the ones on the 'tesaki'(narrow end), and between 'otaiko'(square bow) and 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) are prominent.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

Although there are flaws by ages, it is still wearable.
Please enjoy its full taste of vintage!
