This is a vintage Maru obi with romantic flowers pattern, which is dyed.
Large rose and petite and pink flowers are dyed colorfully.
'botan'(peony) and Primula sieboldii are dyed on the wrong side.
Textile is shioze silk, and it has crisp touch.
Otaiko pattern is placed upside down so the obi must be tied by Hikinuki.

It has prominent smudge on Tare and Tesaki ends, both edges and along the folding lines.
Stains and patinas on the main side are fine and not disturbing. (A)
It has streaky stains (B) below the Otaiko pattern, but they will not show when tied.
Stains on the wrong side are also fine but some are darker (C). Ones near Maegara maybe noticed.
Please use Kanto-maki (rotate obi counterclockwise) for a better Maegara.
Other stains mentioned should not shown when tied properly.
Embroidery of Kaikiri lines are coming loose and threads to hold the foil threads may be getting weak. (fourth photo after the drawing image, described as snags)
Kaikiri line of the wrong side is also coming loose at a part.
It has some other flaws as shown on photos.
Please see photos for details.

It has prominent streaky discoloration on the blank parts near the Tesaki end of the main side. (sorry no photos)
It also has prominent smudge below the Otaiko pattern of the wrong side.
Both should not show when worn.


Because of its old age, it has some flaws, but it is still a very lovely vintage item for its romantic design!
