An antique Chinese tapestry / embroidery. Traditionally presented as a wedding gift in China during the 18th century. We removed this one from a manoir in France where it has been hanging for twenty years. That owner had owned it for forty years having purchased it in Hong Kong. The backing is as fascinating as the front with signs of an unfinished work. A magnificent piece. Hangs from a pole which is not supplied as impossible to send.
