Qing Leopard Silk Scarf
The Metropolitan Museum of Art
The pattern on this striking square 100% silk twill scarf was inspired by a late 18th–early 19th-century silk badge; 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.
