Rare Chinese Yun Jian Embroidered Silk Cloud Collar, circa 1880



An exceptional and rare antique Chinese Yun Jian embroidered silk cloud collar dating from circa 1880. The collar is beautifully hand embroidered on colored silk with birds, butterflies and floral designs with overlapping and freely hanging cloud shaped panels with embroidered edges and attached to a rounded neck band fastened to the front. The collar has an open web woven netting to the lower body with attached handing colored silk tassels and small silver coin like buttons sewn into the netting. To the back the collar has a single panel with an exotic bird. The collar is lined in orange colored silk. The Yun Jian can be accurately dated due to the use of the purple color to elements of the collar which was first used, circa 1880. Offered in fine condition and retaining bright vibrant colors.
