Gorgeous silken Chinese rank badge with a navy blue background, golden stitching along its base, borders and accenting throughout, image of a silvery green pheasant standing on a rock, a fish jumping out at it from the water, and many designs of flowers, and clouds in various vivid shades of blue. Rank badges were to be worn on the front of a robe to show ranking and status of the elite in imperial China during the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties. Pheasants would show the status of an imperial official. 18th-19th century Size: 11" x 11", frame 13.25"
