This is a vintage Maru obi with elegant 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum) on 'yukiwa' (snow crystals) with 'Aoi' (hollyhock) 'Marumon' (circle) pattern, which is finely embroidered.
Gold glazing and gold threads are added on the pattern for extra elegant look.
Textile is soft silk.
Thin shiny gold threads are woven in fabric
Otaiko pattern is placed upside down so the obi must be tied by Hikinuki.
Maegara is on the Same side of the Otaiko pattern, and 'Kiri'(paulownia ) and 'Sakura'(cherry blossom) and 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum) on 'shokkou-mon' (octagon and rectangle pattern) are embroidered only on Kanto-maki (rotate obi counterclockwise) side.


It is rather prominently discolored throughout and has patinas in places.
Especially the ones on the blank parts are noticeable.
Folding lines and edges are smudged, and dyestuff of Kimono has transferred onto them partially. (second and fifth photos after the drawing image)

There is a large stain on embroidery on Maegara and 'Kiri'(paulownia ) embroidery is coming loose at three parts. (sorry no photos)
It has some other flaws as shown on photos.
Please see photos for details.


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