ANTIQUE CHINESE HAND-EMBROIDERD SILK DRAGON TEXTILE - QING - FRAMED
The whole panel expertly hand-embroidered in lucious soft colors with a central Five-toed (lung) Dragon amidst stylized cloud scrolls and surmounted by a bat; the Dragon in gold couched metallic thread with a stem stitch outline to define and separate the dragon's scales to give them a relief effect; over a double wave design centered with a 'Lotus' (symbol of devine purity) and mountains; all skillfully embroidered in satin stitch, stem stitch, long and short stitch; a Phoenix bird at the top left and a Manchurain Crane at the top right, and two further Phoenix birds over the waves. A beautifully embroidered border of butterflies between florals, and a wider embroidered border of floral roundels between metallic gold cloud scrolls, in a simple black wood frame. Condition: Very, very good as would be commensurate with age and use; slight separation at three corners of the frame and some very minor nicks and scratches, there may be some glare from the glass in the photos. It's a gorgeous piece ready to be hung on your wall.
