Fine and rare semi antique, approximately 60 to 80 years old, supplementary weft silk floss embroidered, on a natural indigo dyed base of hand spun cotton thread, child’s blanket from the Zhuang ethnic group Southern China. This has a very unusual pattern I have seen only on one other Zhuang textile, please note the center field is covered with a repetition of the Chinese character “Wang”, which means king, also quite unusual are auspicious coin symbols. There is one simple repair in enlargement #5, as well as some minor loss to a few of the wang characters. Dimensions: 72cm/28in x 72cm/28in.
