Embroidered Pair of Silk Sleeve Bands on yellow ground satanized silk.

The Embroidered is mainly in the auspicious three blues with six colourful butterflies. The three blues are used to show various and foliage.

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

Six butterflies are important as it is the wish for a complete old age, the fulfilment of a complete life.

Excellent colouring and stitch work.
