Vintage Chinese Hand Embroidered Rotating Silk Panel With Blue Jays and Cherry Blossoms on Rosewood Stand
A very pretty piece of textile art - hand stitched silk - blue jays perched amongst red cherry blossoms, framed in glass and mounted in to an intricately carved dragon headed rosewood stand. These pieces are famed for their quality as the image should look as good from either the front or back when viewed. Hence the rotation.
Probably made in the city of Suzhou or Su xiu (苏绣) “The Venice of the East”. The embroidery there is famed as one of the oldest embroidery centres in the world and is close to the city of Shanghai.
A truly beautiful piece of hand stitched art.
Dimensions: W11.5", D2", H12". Condition - very good.
