Chinese pair of silk sleeve bands with excellent embroidery in silk on satin silk. The embroidery is predominately in sans lan or known as the three blues which is propitious.

the work is excellent with very precise embroidery to show plants, gourds, Lingzhi and a pair of butterflies.

Although the majority of bands were worn the best work was also reserved for the best robes which were obviously only worn on the most important occasions or by the wealthy.

Sleeve bands were also seen by the embroiderers as what would be seen in the west as passing their apprenticeship. What in the west in furniture as the apprentice piece.

These are very well done.
