VERY OLD ANTIQUE CHINESE SILK SATIN AND FABRIC SKIRT TERRIFIC EXAMPLE OF HIGH CRAFTSMANSHIP AND QUALITY EMBROIDERY SKILLS. OVERALL THE CONDITION IS VERY GOOD CONSIDERING AGE AND USE. THOUGHT TO BE FROM THE LATE QING - 1800'S SATIN BACKGROUND IS CREAM WITH MULTI COLORED FLOWERS, BUTTERFLIES, DRAGONS AND TREES AND OTHER FOLIAGE EMBROIDERED THROUGHOUT THE PANELS. TRIMMED IN BLACK SATIN WITH PRINTED GOLD RIBBON TRIM ON TOP OF THAT.

THE SKIRT IS LINED IN A YELLOW, FADED FABRIC THAT APPEARS TO BE SATIN AS WELL. THE WAISTBAND IS A HIGH QUALITY LINEN. AND IS WATER STAINED AND NEEDS CLEANING. ONE PANEL APPEARS TO HAVE SOME SORT OF FUR SEWN IN A SEAM IN A STRIP FOR ABOUT THIRTEEN INCHES. 39 INCHES LONG AND APPROX.

44 INCHES WIDE ACROSS TOP OF THE WAISTBAND. SKIRT IS PLEATED SO ITS DIFFICULT TO KNOW HOW TO MEASURE. THERE ARE NO RIPS OR TEARS WITH THE EXCEPTION OF AN INCH OR TWO OF LOOSE BLACK TRIM. THE WHOLE PIECE NEEDS A THOROUGH CLEANING. THERE IS ONE BLUEISH DISCOLORATION THAT I'VE TRIED TO CAPTURE IN THE PHOTOGRAPH.

THIS PIECE, ALONG WITH THE OTHER ASIAN TEXTILES I'VE RECENTLY LISTED, CAME FROM THE FAMILY OF THE ORIGINAL OWNER. THEIR GRANDFATHER HAD LIVED IN CHINA AS A BOY AND BROUGHT THESE PIECES BACK WITH HIM TO STORE AWAY UNTIL RECENTLY. MOST OF THE PIECES ARE KNOWN TO BE WELL OVER ONE HUNDRED YEARS OLD.
