A Rare full set of Imperial Chinese Chaofu (Formal Robe)skirt, cuffs and collar. Silk embroidered dragons with gold-wrapped thread on the Gauze ground. Five-clawed dragons racing amidst clouds in pursuit of flaming pearls above water and wave motifs. The white silk stitches on dragons were made to imitate effect of seed pearls. Chaofu was the most formal robe of the Qing Dynasty. Gauze Chaofu is very rare on the market today. According to the "Collected Regulations & Precedents of the Qing" ("Da Qing Hui Dian"), the uncut chaofu skirt and collars shows here should be made for an imperial prince of first degree.
