This is a lovely vintage Maru obi with Marumon (circle) of 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum), 'Ume'(Plum blossoms) and 'Kaede'(maple leaf) design, which is dyed.
It has glossy embroidery work on 'otaiko'(square bow).
The 'Kinkoma'(golden outlining embroidery work) and gold glazing are elegantly shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
It is relatively short, 384cm(12ft 7.18in).
The pattern is designed up side down to be tied with hikinuki knot style.
The 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) is on one side, and the design will show when you tie with Kanto wrap side(Rotate obi counterclockwise).

It has prominent discoloration and patinas allover and the white embroidered part has noticeable patinas.
'Kinkoma'(golden outlining embroidery work) on 'otaiko'(square bow) has loose stitch and it seems like the threads on the gold foiled threads are getting weak. (Refer to the 4th flaw photo, it says peeling spots)
There is prominent stain on plain part between 'otaiko'(square bow) and 'maegara' (front pattern on belly), but it will be hidden when you tie. (Refer to the 5th flaw photo)
It also has various sized stains, but the noticeable ones will be hidden when you tie.(A,B,C)
The folding lines are prominent.
There are also some other flaws such as frays and smudges.
For the details, please refer to the photos and figure.

Although there are flaws by ages, it is still wearable.
Please enjoy this tasteful fashion!
