To give a little more information regarding the image locality of Funing County: Funing County (富宁县) is located in Wenshan Zhuang and Miao Autonomous Prefecture (文山壮族苗族自治州). This prefecture borders that of Liupanshui City (六盘水市) in Guizhou Province. Regarding the following caption:
Quote:
Cape. This cape is mourning apparel for the eldest daughter-in-law of the dead. Yi people of Panxian County [Guizhou] have this custom from page 66 of The costumes and adornments of Chinese Yi Nationality Picture Album

There is no such county (Panxian County) in Guizhou, or indeed China. I think this may be a result of the character (xian) being translated twice. On the border in question, Pan County (盘县, literally Pan xian), does exist.

Pamela, Iain and others,

thanks so much for your incredibly insightful postings. Couldn't imagine a more instructive place to visit for all things textiles.

Liupanshui is a prefecture in western Guizhou. The name is a combination of Liuzhi Special District, Panxian and Shuicheng. Panxian (Pan County) is one part of Liupanshui. Liupanshui composes a huge geographical area in Guizhou's "wild west".
