Seventh Rank Mandarin Duck rank badge. This one evinces unconventional use of roundel in this unused rank badge. The appropriation of the once exclusively Imperial circular form of the rank badge in the late Qing dynasty was common. This one is in pristine unused condition, but is an example without the sun applique. Measures 11" diameter. Excellent quality refined embroidery. Perfectly preserved from an especially well cared for collection.
