Chinese late Qing dynasty Guangxu period multi-lobed wedding collar embroidered in polychrome silk thread with flowers, birds, insects, and small animals on a silk ground. The collar is composed of two layers of streamers, with shorter red narrow streamers lightly stitched onto longer white streamers which terminate in ruyi heads. Applied ribbon and black edging outline the streamers. The neck and lining are cotton. Late 19th/early 20th century. 10” streamer length x 5” wide ruyi head. Neck is about 13 ½” long. The collar is stable, intact, and in good overall condition. There is wear to the silk in several areas (see enlargements). This collar is from a New Mexico collection.
