This is a vintage Maru obi with bold 'Marumon' (circle) of phoenix and cranes on large folding fan pattern, which is woven.
Gold foil threads included in the pattern and the base elegantly shine.
'neji-ume' (twisted plum blossom), 'Kiri'(paulownia ), and Tachibana'(Japanese citrus) are also designed boldly on fan.
Textile is soft silk.
Length is 392cm(12'9") rather short.

Corners of Tare and Tesaki ends are lightly frayed. (second photo after the drawing image)
The base fabric at Tare end is slightly discolored and has patinas. ( first photo after the drawing image )
Parts of the weft yarns are pulled and looks like an uneven spot of weaving, but not disturbing. (sorry no photos)
There are small snags and fluffs on the foil and woven threads. (A.B, third and fifth photos after the drawing image)
It does not have a folding line.
Please see photos for details.

Because of its old age, it has some imperfections, but it is still a very lovely vintage item for its impressive an bold woven design!
