Subject:Large display tapestry
Posted By: Christopher Mon, Apr 03, 2017 IP: 2602:0306:c4bb:aa30:

I came across this recently. It's approximately 120" x 55" and I think it is Guangxu. It's made of either heavy embroidered cotton or wool. I was wondering what it would have been used for. It's kind of thin to be a rug.

This is not Guangxu. It is an image of a young QianLong emperor. The tapestry could have been made from an existing portrait but cant help you on its use. | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
