Exceptional Antique 19th Century Chinese Horse Silk Tapestry Embroidery Signed
Here is an exceptional antique Chinese embroidery of silk and gold on blue silk. It is in excellent condition and the colors are very bright. The blue silk is almost transparent and very light yet the textile has substantial weight to it. The supple handle indicates that the gold content is unusually high and it is plausible that there are several grams of gold in this textile. It feels different from the hundreds of other Chinese textiles I have handled in the past that included gold thread or gold wrapped thread. Dimension: 20.5 x 4.5. Condition: Very good original.
