This is a rare and fine silk kesi dragon roundel from the 19th century. It is very likely that this roundel was from the surcoat of an Emperor of the 19th century. The roundel shows a 5 claws dragon with a "Long Live for Ten Thousand Years" mark weaved in gold thread over the dragon's head. The endless "Wan" character, which is "Endless Ten Thousand", are all over the back ground in gold thread. It is in overall good condition in rich color with no stain or restoration. Size: 9" diameter.
