Item Description

ANTIQUE CHINESE HANDMADE TEXTILES

Probably made as a children’s hat, although it does fit on my head.

Silk tiger hats were made for children and especially boys to help ward off evil spirits and were mainly worn on special occasions, birthdays, new year celebrations and festivals.

This example is made from silk with various comical and childlike features in different colours.

It is in a worn condition with wear commensurate with age and use. Please see photographs.

Laid flat it measures 44cm high x 33cm wide.
