This is a beautiful vintage Fukuro obi with elegant flying cranes on 'kasumi'(mist) design, which is embroidered.
Gold foil threads woven in the pattern are gorgeously shining.
The textile is glossy shusu(satin) silk with woven cranes pattern, and has soft touch.
Both ends are roughly sewn.(It doesn't matter when tied.)
It is relatively short, 404cm(13'47").
Basting stitches remain on tesaki(narrow end) and tare(wide end).

It seems to be re-sewn from uchikake.

The maegara(front patterned part) is only one side.
When you start wrapping the obi from your right tummy to left(Rotate obi counterclockwise), Maegara will show.

There are repaired tears between otaiko(square bow) and maegara(front patterned part), which are not shown when wore.(6th imperfection photo)
There are tiny spots of molds on maegara(front patterned part).(7th imperfection photo)
the embroideries have slight discoloration but they are not so noticeable.(5th imperfection photo)
It has seams near tare(wide end).(9th imperfection photo)
The folding lines are not prominent.(8th imperfection photo)
It has some other small flaws, such as stains and weaving flaws, as shown on photos.

Though it has some imperfections by ages, it is still wearable enough.
Please enjoy this fashionable vintage piece!
