Description

A beautiful Chinese Birthday Badge.  This badge would be worn on official birthdays, it is from the late Qing dynasty, 1890-1910.  The red emblem represents the Emperors wisdom, being in the right corner, this badge would have been worn by a woman. The bat stands for happiness (top middle), peaches for longevity, the swastikas are good luck symbols, each sending good luck 10,000 times.  The waves, mountains, and rocks symbolize the oceans, land, and mountains, suggesting peace and harmony in the country. 

I have had a photo of this badge looked at by a knowledgeable person. I purchased this badge at an estate sale recently, the home of an elderly gentleman.  It is satin stitch embroidery, on black silk.  It is in excellent condition, I really don't see any problems to mention.  The colors are still bright, they are what caught my eye.

If you have any questions, or would like more photos, please let me know.

This badge measures approx. 10 1/4 x 12 1/4 inches.
