A very unusual antique Chinese lady's wedding skirt with the two main panels embroidered with a dragon and a phoenix in gold couched stitch. With multi coloured silk lappets or streamers attached to metal bells which give a pleasing tinkling sound when the skirt is worn. This would probably have been worn as an overskirt on the wedding day. c 1850 In very good condition with some minimal fading to the tassels.
