This is a vintage Maru obi from Taisho period (1912-1926).
It has mandarin ducks and gentle water streams pattern, which is woven finely.
Foil threads included in the pattern twinkle gently.
Textile is sleek soft 'Shusu'(satin) silk.
Otaiko pattern is placed upside down so the obi must be tied by Hikinuki.
Length is 394cm(12'92"), rather short.

Though it is not a flaw, color threads are omitted from the pattern where does not show when tied. (fourth photo after the drawing image)
Width are irregular partially. Width for about 1/3 of the Obi is 29cm(11.3in), but the rest has 32cm(12.4in). (perhaps a short person wore this Obi to make a narrow bow)

Gold threads at Kaikiri are coming loose.
Foil threads are discolored partially.
Woven threads are smudged and missing in places due to its old age. (sorry no photos)

Because of its old age, it has some flaws, but it is still a very lovely vintage item.
