Antique Chinese Forofferden Stitch Silk Embroidered Blue Peony Butterfly Robe

This antique Chinese forofferden stitch silk embroidered blue peony butterfly robe dates from the 19th century during the end of the Qing Dynasty. It is all hand stitched, made of a dark midnight blue color silk damask brocade pattern fabric, with varying shades of blue silk raised padded satin stitch hand embroidery work and tiny forofferden stitch Peking knot embroidery work done on several of the peony flowers and butterflies. There are large embroidered roundel medallions of butterflies and peony flowers which represent love & affection and good luck. There are golden yellow silk matching embroidered sleeve band cuffs and silk damask ribbon trim edging. This magnificent Manchu style surcourt robe is loose fitting, a long full length, with long full wide sleeves, side skirt slit vents, an open front with no closures and is fully lined in blue silk. The robe measures 39 inches long, with 62 inch hips, waist and chest and 40 inch circumference wide sleeve cuffs. It is in good condition, with only minor wear and missing the front button closures. This is truly a wonderful piece of antique Chinese textile art!
