Exquisitely hand embroidered silk on satin ladies sleeve cuffs. Given the materials used and quality of stitching I will date these early 20th century possibly even Qing. These are near pristine condition and appear to have never been used (possibly for a wedding once). There are a couple of tiny stains and a small “scuff” on the surface, but no tears or holes whatsoever. The purple band is not part of the embroidery and is a ribbon sewn on...

Exceptionally rare baby blanket from the Tujia weavers of Longshan County, Hunan Province, China. I have been looking for one of these for years and this is the first complete blanket I have ever found, albeit the lower two border panels come from a different piece. This incorporates the unique white tiger motif (see enlargement #3) which is believed to give the baby protection...

Beautiful old Zhuang minority textile from Guangxi Zhuang/Guizhou province, China. Woven in two panels with silk embroidered “diamond and star” patterned border. There are small repairs noted in enlargement #4, minor fading on the left edge- all consistent with an old piece, some orange and brighter purple silk thread seem to be a later embellishment, indicating that this piece has been handed down several generations and highlights the well toned abrash of the original pattern...

Very fine bridal head cloth from the Red Yao (Kim Mien) ethnic group Yunnan, China or Vietnam. I acquired a few of these over the years but this the best one yet in terms of design and detailed embroidery work. These are heirloom pieces given by a mother to her daughter. This is made from all hand spun, and hand woven silk on cotton background using only natural dyes, particularly nice are the small, seemingly, random indigo highlights in the field...

Nice collection of six old silk embroidered pictorial panels. These would date from late Qing to Republic Period 1890-1930, and were probably originally sold by the Friendship Store or Yue Hwa China Products Store about 30 years ago. The borders are machine made vintage but the embroidery is all hand done. There is a small tear on one noted in enlargement 6#, (actually very difficult to see and if lying flat almost invisible)...

Fine embroidered patch possibly from an old Chinese baby hat or one of the many Miao groups but to be honest I am not sure. The pattern seems more abstract than a typical Chinese piece with crimped metal alloy decorations. Circa 60 to 90 years old with very intricate and detailed stitching- minor losses to some of the metal bits. Free shipping via Hong Kong Registered Airmail. L: 17.5cm/7in and W: 14cm/5.5in.
