Abstract:

"This book is a comprehensive guide to collectible Chinese textiles. Published by Schiffer Publishing, Ltd., Threads of Gold includes an extensive number of textile examples along with an easy to follow grading system to assist in determining value. Threads of Gold is beautifully illustrated with over 500 detailed photos of ceremonial court robes, badges and decorative textiles dating from the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) to the Ch'ing Dynasty (1644-1911). It is designed for historians, Asian studies scholars and textiles collectors, from beginning to advanced, as a real-world representation of available pieces and an in-depth study. It is a must for appraisers and connoisseurs alike." -- Haig's of Rochester.
