This is a tasteful vintage Shioze Maru obi with swimming carp pattern, which is lively depicted and dyed.
The realistically depicted carps seems to jump out of the obi and jump into a pond!

The pattern is designed up side down to be tied with hikinuki knot style.
There are only one 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) on each side on Kantou-maki (rotate obi counter clockwise) side.

There are discoloration, small stand out and patinas due to its age which are relatively faint.
There is a large faint stain on 'maegara' (front pattern on belly) of right side which will be located on the left side belly when you wear it which could be not that noticeable.(A)
There is a faint stain above the black carp pattern on 'otaiko'(square bow) of wrong side which could be hidden when you wear it.(B)
There are noticeable brown stains on the side of maegara of right side (carp under sakura) which could be seen on the right side of belly when you wear it.(refer to the 5th flaws photo)

Though it has some flaws by ages, it is still in good condition as a vintage item!
