Very Good for the age, there is a faint mark in the middle of the obi on one side, they are small frays on corners, see photos. The obi has a slight foldline.
This is a lovely woven silk maru obi from the early Showa Era. The colourway and design are very unusual. The design is of phoenix flying over waves and islands and the pale blue and pink colours really enhance the beauty of the piece. Wonderful to collect or display!
