There is fading to the fabric and the embroidery but it's fairly uniform. The biggest condition issue is a tear along the top of the right sleeve about five inches long. This appears to be due to age and it's along an old fold. Luckily, because of the location of this tear, it's not too noticeable when being displayed. T he top two loops for fastening the top two gilt brass buttons are missing.
I think the very top loop is still partially there and torn, but the next one is missing completely. Also, as you can see in the close-up, the front center seam along the embroidered border trim at the neck has been resewn with some ugly blue thread. This is an area that might require someone with knowledge to look at if you decide to repair it. Finally, there are a number of mostly small areas where the embroidery work has come undone. This is true with the gold threaded dragons as well as the different colored theads.Most of these areas are along the backside and the shoulder area, but there are a few on the front side too. I should also mention that the remaining button loops along the side are very worn. They do function, but they may need some reinforcement or repair in the future. It's kind of difficult to measure precisely because of the buttons loops at the top, but it measure 24.5 to 25 inches across the chest from armpit to armpit. Also, the sleeve length is 35 inches from the center of the collar to the end of the sleeve cuff. This robe will be carefully packed into a larger box so it doesn't need to be folded terribly flat. BE SURE TO CHECK OUT MY OTHER AUCTIONS. I strive to receive 5/5!!
That's they're new system. Heavier items will cost more. So I do sometimes add a couple of dollars to the cost to cover myself. I guarantee everything I sell. However, I go to great lengths to provide correct measurements and nice big pictures of every detail.If you fail to do so, or the piece doesn't fit properly, I'm sorry, but there's nothing I can do. However, I sometimes don't get around to leaving the feedback for a week or so. This item is in the category "Antiques\Asian Antiques\China\Robes & Textiles".
