Fine and rare antique Bouyi, Buyi three paneled wedding blanket with supplementary weft silk embroidered pattern. Except for the purple aniline silk thread the dyes on this piece are natural; the blanket foundation is made of a bast fiber weft (hemp or ramie) and handspun cotton warp. There is some loss to the cream colored silk thread but having said this, it is in excellent condition for late 19th to early 20th century textile from Southern China and thoughtfully woven- please note how the diamond patterns match up on with one another on the panels. Actual dimensions- W: 79cm/31in and L: 116cm/42in, with indigo cotton border W: 104cm/41in and L: 141cm/55in
