This costume comes from an old Canadian collection of Oriental Art, including many Chinese robes 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 antiques textiles, we would like to inform our clients that this is a 100% authentic antique Chinese costume and not a reproduction, and is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
