Dear all,
could anyone help in identifying the origin of this skirt fragment.
It very much looks like a part of a Qing period Han skirt and the Qilin/phoenix pictography is in line with this. However, in many years of collecting Qing textiles, I have never come across this particular embroidery style. Both the elaborate technique and the floral patterns used in the border don't seem to be common to typical Qing dynasty textiles. There seem to be similarities to Ottoman or Indo-persian patterns and techniques. Could this be a mixture of influences, perhaps from a Turkic part of China?

PS: I do not own this piece so these are all the photographs available.

What fantastic work! The application of the all the beads, cord etc. in the embroidery is just incredible - so very thickly encrusted and yet all visible in the 3-D presentation. I am afraid I can't help you re an ID - only appreciate it! Thanks.
