Superb, Unused Antique Chinese Silk Brocade Roll, 152" Long, 1920s/30s Description

Superb, Unused Antique Chinese Silk Brocade Roll, 12.6ft Long, 1920s/30s

This is a stunning antique piece of Chinese silk brocade dating to the 1920s or 30s. It came from a family in the US who had unopened trunks belonging to relatives in the US navy who lived in the town of Chefoo (now called Yantai) in China during the inter-war period. They were selling a number of items from these trunks, and I was lucky enough to acquire just one thing from the collection.

This bolt of silk still has it’s original roller with the name of the manufacturer or seller on it, and is in a rich golden colour with silver, green, and many shades of brown brocade detail.

The whole piece measures 152” (12ft 8” or 386cm) in length and 27” (68cm) wide. You will have great difficulty sourcing a similar piece of this quality and age anywhere else, regardless of price; unused antique silk is in great demand, and very rare.


Truly superb – the condition is almost as new, with the only thing of note being a crease to the unstitched end (as seen in photo).

About me

I have collected glass and ceramics, antiques and antiquities for many years, and my shop philosophy is to sell very good antiques at very low prices very quickly so I do not need to carry much stock; larger shops will charge much more, but take much longer than I do to make a sale. Each to their own, then - but that makes my prices ultra-low compared to a bricks-and-mortar antiques shop.

I try to describe everything I sell as honestly as possible, including any damage, issues, or attributions to a maker, in my descriptions. If you have any questions, a problem with a piece you’ve bought, or even further info on a piece I’m selling (always welcome!) please mail me. Please don’t ever leave negative or neutral response without speaking to me – we can always come to a solution.
