It measures 115 inches (292cm) by 80 inches (203cm), about 9 feet by 7 feet, and is in near-perfect condition. It is made of up 9 panels, sewn onto a back layer of silk. There are no major holes, no unravelling, no stains, it is almost perfect. It has been folded up in a cedar chest for many decades, and smells of sweet cedar wood. The surface is covered in “Forbidden Stitch” embroidered designs of censers, planters with leaves and flowers, smoke, ribbons, very intricate. You can see a pair of shoes in the second photo, that should give a frame of reference as to how enormous this piece is. I had to climb up onto my roof to photograph it. It is a dark forest-green color, with Forbidden Stitch motifs of lanterns, flowers, vases, smoke, flaming pearls, all over the surface. It weighs 3 pounds total. It would be a great piece to hang in the lobby of a large building in Hong Kong, or of a large mansion. Due to the high value, please message me before purchasing.
