The Chinese used roundel silks as decorative ornaments and often included them in their silk robes. This pair has brilliant colored embroidered designs of pomegranates and butterflies on an Imperial yellow brocaded silk, Circa 1900. How beautiful! Upon close examination you will discover that that portions of the wings of the butterflies are composed of the highly prized forbidden stitch. The crafted artistry of this pair is astounding and quite pleasing to the eye. In excellent condition, some minor soiling reflecting its age. 6 ¾” diameter.
