Offered for sale is a pair of Chinese antique embroidered Qing Dynasty silk
sleeve bands. Each band is a mirror image of the matching piece. These were
originally made to be decorative borders on the sleeves of a woman’s robe. They
have been detached from the garment and can be framed separately or stitched
together as a single piece. The embroidery is of the highest quality with satin
stitch silk floss and small sections with Peking knot stitch.
The scenes depict beautifully dressed women and men in a garden setting with
flowers, lattice work fences and open pagodas.
The off-white silk satin background has some faint signs of soil along the
edges. However, the embroidery itself is in perfect condition.
Condition: good, commensurate with age
Size: Each band is approximately 20 x 5 inches.
