I'm delighted to offer this wonderful, very rare piece of 18th century (or it may even be earlier) Chinese silk.The silk, which appears to have originally been part of a larger piece, is currently attached to card, but is not stuck down and could be removed if required.The silk has the design drawn on it in charcoal grey ink, and is finely embroidered with silks and metallic wire.Condition: there are some areas with very early repairs, and some brownish spots on the silk near the top. There is a split in the silk about 1.5 inches longin the middle, under the horse's tummy.If this was to be framed (which would probably be the best idea in order to preserve it as due to its age it will be quite fragile) I would recommend it be re-mounted using acid- free board.It measures approx. 18 x 19 inches (45 x 47.5 cm).The last photo shows the back.903657
