This Badge comes from an old Canadian collection of Oriental Art, including many Chinese textiles and related items which we are in the process of photographing and placing for sale for the first time.
Due to the fact that the market is flooded by reproductions of Chinese textiles us robes and rank badges which for inexperienced collectors look the same, we would like to inform our clients that this is a 100% authentic antique Chinese Qing badge and not a reproduction, and is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity
