Pale silk embroidered in Peking knot and satin stitch, some areas couched with gold wrapped thread. The bird maybe a rooster, denoting the 3rd civil official rank, is depicted here in the naive Vietnamese style. Rank insignia from Annam are very rare but closely linked to the Chinese system. Condition: faded, ground fabric stained, few loose and missing threads. Dimension: 28.2 cm x 22.5 cm.
