Rare antique two paneled bed cover from the Daizu ethnic minority of Southern Yunnan, China, only the second in this style of weaving from this group I have ever seen. An unusual piece with very fine silk embroidery and woven field with what may be hemp/ramie handspun threads, as it has a slightly rougher feel than standard cotton thread. I would date this circa early late 19th/20th century with natural dyes. There are small holes and tears throughout the piece as to be expected in a delicate old textile from a tropical climate. L: 120cm/47in and W: 69cm/27in.
