Chinese Qing Silk Embroidered Mandarin Rank Badge Peacock
item#: 1411264
price: Sale in Progress
Chinese late Qing dynasty Mandarin rank badge depicting a peacock perched on one leg on rockery surrounded by cresting waves. The black background is filled with flowers, clouds, bats, and auspicious symbols. This badge would have been stitched onto the formal robe of an official of the 3rd rank in the civil bureaucracy. Late 19th to early 20th century. 11” x 12 1/4." Very good overall condition with some overall discoloration and dulling of the color evident. The backing appears to be original.
