PROVENANCE: This embroidery comes from an old Canadian collection of Oriental Art, including Chinese embroidery and related items, which we are in the process of photographing and placing for sale for the first time.
Due to the fact that the market is flooded by reproductions of Chinese textiles, which for inexperienced collectors look the same as the authentic antique textiles, we would like to inform our clients that this is a 100% authentic antique, Chinese Qing Dynasty item, and not a reproduction, and is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
