Chinese Qing Dynasty Silk Embroidered Mandarin Rank Badge Lion
item#: 1412162
price: $425.00
Chinese late Qing dynasty silk embroidered Mandarin rank badge depicting a lion on rockery surrounded by cresting waves and a pine tree in the background. Two bats fly overhead among clouds and near a bright red sun. This badge was designed in two parts and would have been stitched onto the front of the formal robe of a military official of the 2nd rank. Late 19th to possibly early 20th century. 11” x 12 3/8." Very good overall condition with some overall minor discoloration and soiling evident. There are small traces of old paper mounting adhering in a few places on the border. The blue silk backing appears to be original.
