This very large, striking 19th century Chinese embroidered silk collar was made to be worn over a silk robe on festive occasions. The collar was created from 40 separate petal-shaped pieces of black silk fanned around a lined neck band. Outer petals are embroidered with 20 different colorful butterflies; inner petals have 20 different vases holding a variety of flowers. Backed with white silk and set within a traditional Asian frame, this costume piece from China's past is now dramatic wall art. The collar is in excellent condition and is displayed against white silk. The framing was done in Korea in the 1990s and is in pristine condition. Dimensions of the framed piece: 35" (89 cm) square.
