We had the good fortune to acquire this magnificent 19th century Chinese Imperial Court Five Toed Kesi Dragon Robe constructed of blue silk brocade with colored silk and gold thread. This robe would have been hand woven for a member of the Chinese Court. If this blue is deemed to be “Imperial Blue” then the robe would have been made for the Emperor or member of the Imperial family. Bottom Width: 34″, Width across shoulders (cuff to cuff): 67″. Featuring gold Imperial five clawed dragons chasing a flaming pearl among clouds, and interspersed with Buddhist “Auspicious Symbols”, along with colorful cranes, shou medallions and other symbols, above a gold swirling wave border. The black ground collar and horse shoe cuffs also with gold five claw dragons, Buddhist symbols and gold wave border. Acquired from an estate collection and offered in excellent overall condition consistent with age. Check out our 3500 sq. Showroom in Cincinnati 45226.
