A well preserved Chinese man’s silk hat with great embroidery designs.

The silk hat has panels of pale green silk. These have been embroidered with gilt and silk threads. There are Daoist symbols, such as coins, fans, ruyi scepter and auspicious bats. There are also flowers and vines. The interior is lined in a pale faded red fabric. The outer band is black silk with pale green and pink piping.

There is a six-character mark in the lining, with two more identical characters above this and a single character in the center. There is also an old paper export label. The printing on the paper label has now faded.

MEASUREMENTS

7” (17.8 cm) diameter x 3 5/8” (9.2 cm) tall. Weighs 3.4 oz (95 g)

CONDITION

Moderate soiling is visible on the exterior of the hat. Most of the embroideries are tight, although there are some loose threads. The crown of the hat may have once had a finial because there is a tiny reinforced hole in the center where the panels come together. It looks like it was purposely made. The interior red lining has faded and is soiled, but the embroideries are still colorful and bright.

An very old Chinese hat to add to a collection or even wear. It’s in that good of shape.
