Chinese Antique pair small bands of silk embroidery
Please refer to our stock # TC154 when inquiring.
$125 for the pair
Each band of this pair of very fine silk embroideries have 2 sets mirror images: one set of floral motif and the other set of a couple celebrating. Both sets use satin stitch, french knot (aka forbidden stitch) and couching embroidery techniques. The embroideries are on a background fabric of fine patterned silk which measures 6" by 15". The floral embroidery is 1.5 x 2" and the couple embroidery is 1.5 x 5". Because of the sizes of the fabric and the sizes and arrangement of the embroideries, I think these were originally intended to be used for the vamp of a pair of Lotus Shoes.
