This beautiful Chinese vintage silk embroidered lotus flower panel came from a long time collector and dealer of Chinese silks and textiles and someone I have known for a while. She has the most beautiful things. On a black silk background, beautiful flowers are embroidered in bright multicolored threads using satin stitches. The panel has a later brocade border. It can be framed and hung or used in another larger piece. The condition of the embroidery is very good, there are no visible damages or imperfections aside rubbing in some spots to the black silk border surrounding the panel, please see the pictures. Please keep an eye out for our Japanese silks and scarves from our collection and soon to be posted.

the Lotus flower
Primarily a symbol of purity, the lotus is revered in Japan for its ability to rise from the dirty muddy waters to bloom into a beautiful flower. Most commonly associated with the Buddhist achievement of enlightenment, it has been used as a very popular symbol of living your life to the fullest.
