Silk Embroidered Chinese Festival Hat c.1900’s
Well-preserved hat with excellent facial features. An unusual short hair beard and exquisite silk embroidery. Chinese children's hats were designed as tigers and dragons to protect the child from sickness, ward off evil spirits, and also imbue the child with important qualities such as wealth, health, courage, academic success, happiness, long life, grace, and beauty. These hats were full of symbolism.
This hat is in fair to good condition with some fading and soiling of the fabric, as would be expected of a hat of this age. The hat measures roughly 16cm by 17cm.
Made in Northern China
