Description

An early eighteenth-century Chinese porcelain bowl in the Museum's collection combines typical Eastern ornamentation with European details meant to appeal to a Western market. Called a monteith, a type of bowl with a notched rim, it is the source for our luxurious tree-and-flower print scarf. The motifs of a sprawling tree, blossoming flowers, and fish are painted in overglaze famille verte enamels (a Chinese palette of color in which shades of green predominate), and gilt.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Qing Tree Scarf This is a lovely scarf. I ordered a red scarf; however, the scarf I received is nowhere near the light, bright red depicted in the catalog. The scarf I received is dark maroon. The fabric and workmanship are very nice, but the color is quite disappointing. I will not shop from this catalog again, since I cannot trust it to accurately depict the merchandise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scarf! Beautiful, all-weather scarf. Light enough to wear in summer, warm enough to wear in cool weather. Can use with casual or fancy attire. Brilliant colors. Fast order fulfillment. I bought this one for gift but decided to keep it. Will buy 2 more as really great gifts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely in black! I bought this scarf in black and I very happy with both the design, quality, and the colours. There are endless choices when it comes to scarves, but buying an item from the MET has that something special....history!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase I bought the scarf in red, and it's a lovely, vibrant cranberry red, just as I had hoped. The other colors and the print are great. Overall, the size of the scarf, and the look, the feel, and the weight of the silk are all of a quality I would expect to receive for the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Quality Despite the gorgeous illustration, this scarf turned out to be sub-par. The quality did not seem like silk .. it was stiff, not "silky," and the print was also stiff, very linear. In short (1) the scarf was nothing like the illustration, now (2) was it of the quality of the many other scarves I've bought from the Met Museum over many, many years. Get rid of it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My wife loved this! This was a Mother's Day gift and it was a great hit. The palette of colors works well with many items, the quality of the fabric was excellent (light and airy) and the size was generous but not outlandish, and the design is lovely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely loverly scarf When my scarf arrived in the mail, I was delighted that it was even prettier than portrayed in the photo. It is really a loverly scarf, and will go with a lot of different outfits.
