Chinese Arm Band Textile Sampler


This beautiful 19th century embroidery fragment is made up of six panels attached to a band that could’ve been a waist band. Incredibly detailed embroidery. Includes copper couched thread, satin stitch, and a multitude of tiny, probably Peking, knot- work. Beautiful variations in the colours of blue in the indigo died threads. There is some distress and fragmentation in the panels with the figures on them. An outstanding piece of period embroidery.

Size: Approximate size 26 x 30“.
