Li Skirt
Hainan, China

Cotton, with silk and cotton embroidery;
brocading and extremely fine warp patterned bands.  29"x 34." This elegant skirt is thought to be 80 to 100 years old, and is in good condition with one small mend. Unlike many of these early "wedding skirts," the embroidery is all in good condition, with no abrasion.  Human figures are featured in the large band, both front and back, and small animals fill the narrow bands.  $985
