item#: 1388761
price: SOLD
Chinese late Qing dynasty (19th century) front-opening Han style lady's jacket embroidered on the front and back in silk polychrome thread with clusters of flowering plants and butterflies on a dark cobalt blue silk satin ground. Much of the embroidery is executed with the “forbidden stitch.” The sleeve bands are similarly embroidered with flowers and Buddhist swastikas on a white silk ground. Three round floral metal buttons secure the front opening and silk closures secure the neck. Measures about 68" from sleeve tip to sleeve tip and 46” in length. The robe and lining are both in very good overall condition. The lining has some minor soiling on the edge and bottom. There is some damage to the button loops and to the collar and neck. There is soiling on the sleeve fronts and there are a few loose seams and worn ribbon edges.
