Give the fact of its rare colour, the complexity of its pattern which is different from the later date ones, I would agree with him.
However that's merely opinion so please check the photos carefully and get a conclusion yourself. What I can confirm is that it is an antique which made before 20c, 90% percent in 17c or 18c I've attached a portrait of Emperor Zhengtong of Ming dynasty(pic 11) who ruled in 15 century for your reference. In the portrait he is wearing a dragon robe which has identical colour and could damask of almost the same design to my panel.
I've also attached a cloud damask of later dates(pic12) which has a simpler pattern than my one. You can see the difference in the cloud's tails and centre. Extremely finely worked piece- just look at the pictures!Please note that there are some areas of wear but overall I would rate this in a good condition for its age. Please check photos carefully for condition and use it as condition report.
