Description

Ready to fold into a stylish triangle, our versatile diamond scarf adapts a late 18th–early 19th-century silk badge in The Met collection; the fanciful leopard indicated the third military rank during the late Qing dynasty.

By imperial Ming dynasty decree of 1391, decorative embroidered squares were sewn on the garments of Chinese government officials. Often of the finest workmanship and materials, the bird or animal on the badge signified the official's rank.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Thin Material, Unevenly Rolled Edging I have bought very pretty, good quality silk scarves from the Met gift shop before, but the last time was about 8 years ago. On the computer screen, the colors and patterns looked very rich on this Qing Leopard lozenge-shaped scarf so I ordered it. I am surprised and disappointed at the poor, unevenly rolled edging and the thin, almost see-through silk fabric. The edging is so poor that the the pointy ends of the scarf are more like ovals than points. I am relieved I did not order the larger, more expensive version of the same design. This will be the last time I order a silk scarf from the Met gift shop online.
