This is a vintage Tsume tsuzure Maru obi with gold and silver flying cranes and lively green color Matsu (pine tree) pattern, which is woven.
Contrast of green Matsu against ocher base is very elegant.
It also has "Hatsurikou" (small gap in the boundaries of colors), which is the distinctive feature of Tsume tsuzure weave.
Textile is rather thick glossy silk, and it has soft to the touch.
Otaiko pattern is placed upside down so the obi must be tied by Hikinuki.
It has a thin lining inside.
Maegara is on both sides and both sides have the same design.
If you use the design on the main side, please use Kansai-maki (rotate obi clockwise).
If you choose the wrong side, please use Kanto-maki (rotate obi counterclockwise).

Seams of both ends are partially open. (A)
It is slightly discolored and smudged throughout.
Smudge along the folding line is prominent, and dyestuff of Kimono is transferred to the Obi. (third, fifth and sixth photos after the drawing image)

For a better Maegara without the smudge, please use the Otaiko pattern on the wrong side and tie by Kanto-maki (rotate obi counterclockwise).

Stains on the main side between Otaiko pattern and Tare end will not show when tied.
It has some other flaws, such as tiny snags and frays, as shown on photos.
Please see photos for details.

If you can close the ends, it can still be a lovely Obi to tie.
We would like you to enjoy its beautiful classical design!!
