Silk damask with 5-claw dragons - circa 1800
A high quality damask silk weaving with a pattern of five-clawed dragons among clouds. Circa 1800. Dim.: 59x60,5cm The weaving has one selvage on the left side. Each dragon stands 25cm high. The ground colour is a brown that reflects in a copper-gold luster. It depends on the reflection of the light whether the dragons appear dark on a light background or the other way around. In general very good condition with a few small stains and tiny holes. Mounted on brown linen on foam board (66x66cm) Reduced in price from 950 euro to 575 euro. There are two more fragments available of this weaving: one full-width double selvage (ca.74x74cm- 875 euro) and a smaller one for 375 euro.
