Offered is wonderful silk 19th century (Qing Dynasty) embroidery boasting a five clawed dragon in the clouds over undulating seas. Excellent colors and superb craftsmanship with added appeal of two, five-clawed dragon on opposing sides, the emperor’s sacred symbols of imperial power and dignity. The panels are mirror images of each other and may have been lifted from a garment especially given the elements of water on both ends. Embroidery has a fabric border which dramatically accents the silk work and presently is configured to be hung horizontally but by changing the wire on verso, can hang vertically with equally commanding appeal. 16 x 47″ (or vertically, 47 x 16″) and nicely framed in brushed gilt wood framed to 18 x 50″ (vertically 50 x 18″).
