Subject:Embroidered Sleeves with Archaic Script
Posted By: Norman Sun, Apr 24, 2022 IP: 2600:1700:d710:9750:

These two sleeve panels were bought in Hong Kong in the late 90's. I believe the script refers to a poem. Any help with translation would be appreciated.

Dear I. Nagy, My apologies, I remembered we had asked for a translation many years before- after some searching I found it. However, the seals weren't identified then either. Any idea about the seals? Or the source of the poem? Anybody have a guess on the date of the sleeves (I assume late Ching?)? Regards, Norman | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
