This is a vintage Maruobi with yaezakura(double cherry blossoms) and tulips on flower raft design, which is embroidered.
Gold and silver foil threads are added to the design and elegantly shining.
The tulips on traditional flower raft motif bring modern atmosphere.
Textile is exquisite soft silk with woven 'kanzesui'(swirl) pattern.
Maegara(front patterned part) is only one side.
When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left (Rotate obi counterclockwise), the maegara will appear.
The pattern on otaiko(square bow) part is designed upside down from kaikiri-line(end mark line) to be tied with hikinuki style.
It is relatively short.(408cm/13'4")

There is discoloration throughout due to its age.
There is a faint stain around the edge of 'otaiko'(square bow) pattern.(A)
There is a faint stain on lower 'maegara' (front pattern on belly).(B)
There are other stains which won't be seen or hidden when you wear it.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

Although it's not mentioned on the sheet and photo, there are missing embroidery threads on upper 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) pattern due to fray.

Although it has some flaws due to its age, it is still very tasteful design which only vintage items have.
