Gold brocaded dragons among clouds chasing flaming pearls. The fragment is 33cm high and 40cm wide. Size of the frame is 43x50cm. Although the style of the dragon, clouds and colouring does resemble textiles from the Kangxi period, it is more likely 19th century made for the Tibetan market. It stems from a larger weaving that probably served as a canopy. I had several fragments in different sizes cut out as the canopy as a whole was in too poor condition. There's a vertical joint in the middle Condition: the gold is shiny and in good condition on the four main dragons. There's wear to the gold at flaming pearls, flames and some clouds. There is a horizontal fraying line visible at the lower left and a less disturbing one at the upper left. At he mid right side there's a frayed area of 7.5cm length. Price is up to the condition. See my other listings for a similar fragment in better condition. Shipping is included in the price.
