RARE Pringle of Scotland REVERSIBLE Traditional Chinese Military Dragon Jacket
I have been collecting clothing for some 50 years now, yet I have to say that this is one of the most exquisite jackets I’ve come across in my now many years. Simply put, I’ve never seen anything like this. The detail that went into creating the design of this sweater, the time it must have taken – it seems almost implausible – and today, I would venture to say that sweaters as such are extinct. Name a brand these days, that will go through the effort of painstakingly etching what is a complex design (not only on the outside, but also the INSIDE) by hand? This is beyond a doubt the only of its kind in existence. There are a few other models out there designed by Pringle for Shannon Free Airport Ireland, but none of these Scottish made sweaters. Or jackets are on a level remotely close to the model seen above. This is a special edition piece, of which a VERY finite amount were made. This jacket is Scottish made. The exterior has a military, Olive Green complexion – and a silky, slightly textured fabric. Think those running pants that make a slick, slick sound when one leg brushed up against the other. Its is very militaryesque, as was the designers intention. This is a throw on jacket – no fasteners, no buttons, the lapels just simply meet. I find the design to be absolutely one of a kind. There are placeholders for buttons, but no buttons themselves. Take the lapels for example – there are slots in which buttons would be pushed through on BOTH sides, whereas on your normal jacket – you would have one lapel with slots for buttons, the other bearing the buttons themselves. This is a no button ensemble, with a myriad of button push throughs. Never seen anything of the like! The no button and large visible seam aesthetic was likely done to give this jacket a rugged feel. Theyve accomplished this rugged aesthetic beautifully. While the exterior of the coat is thin, the interior is THICK – this could has a lot more weight to it than it might seem. The real element of design at the exterior comes at the back. The back of this jacket is absolutely otherworldly… What always catches the eye first is the large dragon dead center. LOOK AT THE INTRICACY OF THE DRAGON ITSELF. This can be described as nothing less than a work of embroidery art, that happens to be on a jacket. Note the hundreds of perfectly defined scales, the face, the body, the claws… Just above the dragon are four, beautifully clean and crisp Chinese characters. The dragon is a high vibrancy orange, which radiates BRILLIANTLY from an Olive Green background. Of course, this jacket does not set out to keep the outside interesting and leave the interior plain. This is a REVERSIBLE piece. Never before have a seen such a crazy contrast of designs on a reversible jacket. The inside is padded – and has the feeling of a soft towel. It is textured (think beach towel) and covers the spectrum in terms of color! The colors at the interior (in contrast to the monotone military olive green at the front) are light high contrasting high vibrancy hues! The colors are deep, and have not washed out over time – not surprising, as this jacket has never met the wash (or dryer). The interior is composed of blue, white, yellow, green, and orange. It resembles the sky and clouds – and has a Tie Dye sort of pattern. At the back of the interior, the bold font ARMY phrase – above that ARMY insignia, 4 orange high color Chinese symbols – floating in the sky. I cannot adequately summarize in words how comfortable of a wear this piece is. And appreciate all of this. It drapes over a layered outfit with finite ease. It is also aerated at the armpits (see above photos) which means that there is airflow throughout the piece at all times, but not so much that you will find yourself cold. Why would someone go through all of that effort when it comes something traditionally hidden on the piece? Why go with a reversible, when the front exterior is something in and of itself to satisfy? Well, because this isn’t Gucci, this isn’t Armani, this isn’t a mega company who is totally profit driven – this is the work of an artist who creates to connect on a personal level. This is someone who loves what they do, and wants you to love what they do too. This piece is in beautiful condition. As noted in the description, the former owner hardly wore it. This piece was a gift – and overlooked for many years. There are a few holes you will see at the exterior – these holes are INTENTIONAL. This is an Army themed jacket, made to look rugged/distressed – hence the few (well placed, and effective) small holes. Those holes (be design) do not carry over into the interior of the jacket lining. You will also see some variation in hue at the exterior, some lighter spots. Again, this is in keeping with the distressed theme. Distressed, intentionally and wonderfully so! Again, this is a piece that does not exist beyond this listing. I LOVE the vintage 90s Traditional Chinese Aesthetic at the frontpaired with that otherworldly interior. Looks aside, however, this is quite possibly the most quality build jacket I’ve seen at my now old age. I will get back to you promptly. 52 Inch Chest (26 Inch Pit to Pit). 27.5 Inch Helm (keep in mind the helm is open). 33 Inch Length (shoulder to helm). 22.5 Inches Shoulder to Shoulder.

RARE 13th A. D. Yuan Dynasty Large Longquan Celadon Dragon Plate
100% authentic antique, 13th Century Large Green Celadon Plate. It was made at Longquan Kiln in Zhejiang, China. The plate was decorated with four-toe dragon facing firing ball amid the broad cloud, with deep olive green celadon glaze. In ancient far east politics (China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam), Dragon was the symbol of “ruler” where five-toe dragon was the Chinese emperor and four-toe dragon was the king or the emperor of smaller kingdom. The deep olive green was the signature color of Yuan Celedon ceramic. The decorated plate like this item along with its huge size of 36 cm made this item most likely one of the tributes from Chinese court to the foreign lands like Thailand and Mynmar, at the time of Yuan Dynasty. The plate is heavy, sturdy and has been repaired by all original pieces (using white epoxy adhesives). Some area appears brownish due to natural color from burial soil penetrating the glaze. Despite being repaired, this item appears spectacular and has tasteful character, reflecting the authority of the ancient art. You can display this plate as shown in the picture or can put green color on the repair if you want to. Width about 36 cm. This is 100% antique, NOT reproduction. The officials of Yuan and Ming Dynasty were known for contacting with southern foreigners and for recruiting these foreigners to pay respect to the Chinese Emperor. In the Yuan Dynasty written record, in the year 1271, the Kublai Khan, the Chinese Emperor of Yuan Dynasty sent an envoy to Kingdom of Pagan (in today’s Myanmar) to demand tributes from the King of Pagan. In the Ming Dynasty written record, in the year 1384, a tribute of 200 products came from Siam and, in return, diplomatic gift of 19,000 Chinense ceramics, among other things were provided in return to Siam. The item was discovered from Thai-Myanmar Border in Tak Province where ancient people buried ceramics in their burial sites. Thai archaeologists believes that these people were Thai settlers along the border between Thai kingdom of Sukhothai and Ancient Burmese kingdom of Pegu or Hongsawadee near India Ocean. These settlers were quite well traded because, in the burial sites, they not only found huge quantity of ceramics from Sawankhalok Kilns (Sukhothai Kingdom), Sankampang Kilns (Lanna Kingdom) but also found substantial quantity of Chinese ceramics (already popular at that time) from Southern Song, Yuan, and Ming Dynasties and some quantity of Vietnamese and Cambodian. After major wars between Thai and Burmese broke out, the area was abandoned, only became occupied later by hill tribe people that migrated into the area in 20th century. The total quantity of ceramics found during 1970s were in thousands but only one plate with dragon incise is seen. Some ceramics from these sites are also exhibited at renowned Southeast Asia Ceramic Museum on Bangkok University’s Rangsit Campus in north Bangkok.
