Antique Embroidered pair of sleeve bands in couched gilt thread to show flowers and butterflies.

The blue satanised silk ground is almost entirely covered with intense couched gilt thread.

The butterfly in Chinese folklore is the symbol for joy, and also means to repeat so all wishes are doubly repeated.

Excellent colour and stitch work

Probably Fujian province
