Dai Wedding Blanket Rare antique two paneled bed cover from the Daizu ethnic minority of Southern Yunnan, China, only the second in this style of weaving from this group i have ever seen. An unusual piece with very fine silk embroidery and woven field with what may be hemp/ramie handspun threads, as it has a slightly rougher feel than standard cotton thread. i would date this circa early late 19th/20th century with natural dyes. There are small holes and tears throughout the piece as to be expected in a delicate old textile from a tropical climate. l: 120cm/47in and w: 69cm/27in. http://www.trocadero.com/stores/abhayaasianart/items/1372738/item1372738...
