A very fine Chinese silk embroidered rank badge with a five clawed walking dragon made of gold metallic thread, couching. This would have been worn on a surcoat belonging to a Chinese prince. Only members of the Imperial family could wear five clawed rank badges. The badge is in excellent condition and the detailing is exceptional. These photos were shot through glass as the badge is in a frame. You will not be disappointed. A truly wonderful example of the best Chinese artisianship. Measures 11.5 inches diameter. Including frame 13.5" diameter. Dates circa 1800-1850.
