This an antique fragment, part of a robe. It has a dragon in the center with 5 toes and big eyes. It is made from handwoven tapestry weave, silk Kossu, or Kesi brocade. The background is light indigo blue going purple with age, with flaming red throughout, with a worn gold thread scaled body. The dragon is chasing the pearl. The central square measures 8 x 8 inches. It has a two toned silk border, a place to put a rod for hanging. The overall measurements are 17 x 13 inches. It has restoration, I have photographed it with ah arrow pointing.
