Description

A very fine Chinese antique silk embroidered festival hat, Qing dynasty, late 19th century. This hat is an absolute masterpiece, carefully embroidered all by hand with the finest materials with the greatest attention to detail.

The tiger's face makes up the front part of the hat with large eyes and lots and lots of fine detail, he has whiskers and horns and large floppy ears.

There are many articulated or movable parts such as his ears that bend into shape with wire and metal threads, the time and the craftsmanship that went into this hat is just incredible.

The tigers body spans the rest of the top of the hat with a large green silk tail that stands out at the back.

The hat has a face framing shape with a long drop to the back, it would have been a boys hat, sometimes referred to as a wind hat, the drop features a finely embroidered opening lotus flower.

Condition overall is brilliant for the age, some wear and tear but nothing major.

Lined in a plain cotton with a light grey / blue shade.

We have a selection of Chinese festival hats that have all come from the same family and kept together.
