Chinese Lady's Finely Embroidered Pendant-Circa 1910-1920
Using six different and elaborate, individual arrangements of silk designed panels adorn the falling pendant, each with a symbolic meaning, the artisans created an outstanding textile based jewelry. The bat hangs from a eight loop fashioned knot, and as it cross member, each side of its wing holds another tighter knot from which long, faded red tassels fall to the bottom of the plaque section. Emerging from the bat's mouth is a 1 cm three section design from the same red, less faded, which connected the amazingly detailed double side thick plaque.
Hanging down from the top framework of a bat and decorative knot, is a two sided, three-dimensional plague, magnificently and finely sewn, which frame an incense burner with fragrance wafting from its top. The cushion like plaque has one side brown and the other blue, with four intact streams of tassels cascading even further. Another complex, 2 cm section of slicked and knotted designs, dropping further from its elaborately stitched 3-C plaque, that holds four delicately organized clusters of varied polychrome silks.
