Excellent condition antique late Qing ladies' jacket robe featuring lovely trim and well embroidered sleeve bands. It is possible that the sleeves were altered at some point. The exterior and interior are both in very good condition with no issues to note.
Seventh Rank Mandarin Duck rank badge. This one evinces unconventional use of roundel in this unused rank badge.

This one is in pristine unused condition, but is an example without the sun applique. Measures 11" diameter. Excellent quality refined embroidery. Perfectly preserved from an especially well cared for collection.

Beautiful double sided Peking knot tassel with bat, peony and vase motifs rendered in tiny Peking knot work. Exquisite quality textile in fantastic condition with vibrant saturated colors. Measures 14" X 2.5".
Beautiful tiny Peking knot embellished silk tassel with window featuring a scene on pith with painting and pastiche, fractured on one of the faces behind this window scene. Incredibly well preserved with bright, crisp colors. Excellent condition other than condition of pith painting. Measures 18" X 2".
