Old estate piece I bought about 10-15 years ago out of Little Rock Arkansas. It has some issues of small snags, some small areas of trim coming loose, but over all in incredible condition for the kind of age I think it is. 48 inches by 42 inches.Features four five tow imperial dragons and a roundel of dragons in the center. Made of silk, gold thread, ect with I think a plain silk backing. Small rings on one side for hanging or possibly for attaching to other clothing, maybe a cape? Really, words can hardly describe the beauty of this piece. If it sells it sells, if it doesnt. I feel this has the possibility of being an imperial piece, at least imperial family, with the five toe dragons and of the intense quality of the stitching and depiction. Hard to believe how many hours might have went into its making. I will cancel sale and relist by assuming that means YOU have asked to cancel the sale by the non-action of not paying. All of my items are used and at least somewhat old to very old. They are likely to have dings, hairlines, firing flaws, wear from use, on and on.
I have been collecting for over 30 years. Chinese and oriental art a primary interest, but I find myself drawn to the unusual. Traveling for work in parts of 4 states Ive found many interesting things. But finding has become extremely difficult in the last 5 to 10 years, not as much good stuff comes around anymore, I think the generation passing now had lesser interest in truly amazing things.
When I get too much I have to sell some to make room. Im not a dealer, retailer, or expert.
