Stunning Chinese Wedding over skirt or costume. Fine satin stitch and couched gold thread elaborate on multi hued silks with traditional dragon and phoenix Emperor and Empress motifs. Condition: overall very good, however, "as-is" because there is a prominent circular discoloration on the phoenix panel, see photos. Slightly lighter on one side due to solar exposure consistent with age. Probably from 1880 - 1910.
