Late Qing Dynasty Nine Dragon Kesi Robe

This gorgeous men's nine dragon robe is silk kesi woven in blue and pale gold tones with brown and gold bands and lower sleeves. The neckline and horseshoe cuffs are edged with black and gold plus a metallic gold braid. There are 8 dragons - the ninth was traditionally hidden on the underlap. This one is plain under there. The 5 clawed dragons are joined by a wide variety of symbolic motifs: clouds, flaming pearls, Ji symbols, herons, fans, swords, bamboo rods, castanets, umbrellas, a canopy and endless knots. And there are more I have yet to identify. The hem has mountains rising out of lishui waves. The eyes of the dragons are white with tiny black pupils. The robe is lined in plain blue silk.

This lovely evening dress coat is lightweight in black velvet with a silk lining. The front panels, neck ties, cuffs and circular flounce are all in a rayon moire. The sleeves are quite long with the added ribbon cuff, but wasn't meant to be turned back as it is not lined and the seam would show. There are the typical 1920s back neck darts as shown.
