An attractive Chinese silk purse probably imperial from the imperial workshop. The bag in a shape of vase which means "Ping An" (peace and secure), worked on blue satin with colorful knotstitch and gold and silver wire, and both sides embroidered with flowers and butterfly, implicated the meaning of growth and transform. Each silk tassel is showing Chinese character "Shou" (longivity). Beautiful color combination.
