A section of old Chinese court robe with four-clawed dragon (mang) in dark blue satin and brocades. We had seen a similar large square with the dragon's face partially missing (four-clawed) at the Kyoto National Museum website sometimes ago. The square (pre 16th century red silk) was once converted to a samurai's ginbaori (sleeveless jacket worn over the armor) for a famous general. Circa, 19th century. 27" x 29 1/2"
