Initialed by Artist at the bottom. Late 18th- Early 19th century. Gold thread throughout. This highly embroidered Chinese textile is hand embroidered throughout using the Kesi brocade/woven technique. The embroidery is early 19th century and I estimate the portrait was created circa 1940-50's. The fragments are from an imperial robe (collar and sleeves) dating to the late 18th century/early 19th century.
The robe fragments have been embroidered to a silk background and the initials of the artist ‘DW’ are embroidered in blue silk thread at the bottom. LOTS of hand done gold metallic thread.
