This is a Chinese "100 birds" silk embroidery dating to late 19th century

Profusely embroidered with a huge array of birds, from a giant Phoenix, a stunning Peacock and cranes to tiny swallows, among the foliage of a tree. All on a gorgeous emerald green silk ground with no damages, staining or losses.

The colour palette of the embroidery is very sophisticated and makes this really stand out from the crowd. Beautiful corals and pinks amongst the subtlest of blues, greens and purples.

Mounted in a black cotton frame, the piece is 138cm x 98cm in it's entirety and the silk is 98cm x 67cm. The silk has pulled slightly to the bottom right from previous hanging and there is minor creasing to the silk. There is one thread loose (on the Phoenix's tail), and another on a leaf that is not detached but baggy, not tight to the ground. In the images, we have hung on chains from a picture rail, it doesn't have any inbuilt hanging system.

ROCHE COWARD ANTIQUES

WWW.ROCHECOWARDANTIQUES.COM

We are Rebecca Roche and Alex Coward.

Our background is in the visual arts, and we value craftsmanship and skill in all things.  This love for quality and beauty, and the scarcity of it in so much of modern manufacturing, has led us to this venture: A Bohemian boutique offering rare, unusual antiques, art pieces and vintage items for the home and garden.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL

Our style is not for the faint hearted!

We lean towards the highly decorative.  If you don't immediately recoil at the prospect of having a huge polychrome carved Balinese temple door in your living room you are in the right place.  We don't do beige or magnolia and we may not be the landlords go to choice, but why choose neutrals when you can have Turquoise or Gold?

GILTY PLEASURES

We like painted things, woven things, carved things and gilded things.  If it is unique and beautiful, if the hand of the artist is present, we like it.  We love great design, elegant lines, bold colour. And gilded things.

We source items from across the ages, from 18th Century Asia to 20th Century Europe.  We want to help you create bespoke interiors, to mix and match; to provide an eclectic, rich, opulent and exotic living environment.
