CHINESE SILK EMBROIDERED ALTAR TEXTILE
Very striking Embroidery and quilting on red silk with couched and embroidered metallic silver colored thread showing dragon and peonies, with squirrels in border areas. The embroidery appears to have been made for a Daoist shrine in the "Pine Mountain" area according to the inscription. The embroidery is in good condition. Several loose threads have been restored and some of the beads have been replaced. This is an example of a Peranakan embroidery, made for the Straits Chinese of Penang, Singapore or Malacca, for festive occasions. 19th century Qing dynasty. Measurements: H 37", W 15 1/2". Provenance: Private Collection.
