This is fun, a Chinese embroidery of 2 figures at a festival, one playing a drum and another holding a lantern. Perhaps it was the autumn lantern festival. Both robes were done entirely in the fancy "forbidden knot" or Peking stitch (see detail pictures). It is most likely from an old robe or decorative hanging used for festivals. The fun frame is in red, and has golden dragons climbing all over. About 16 1/2 by 13 1/2 inches in the frame. The textile is about 100 years old and the frame is new.

This is a fun and decorative embroidery in a versatile size.
