Details:Chinese Silk Textiles of the Ming and Qing Dynasties showcases fine examples of Chinese textiles from the Museum’s collection, including clothing, embroideries, hangings, and banners made between 1570 and 1911. Chinese silk production originated in the Neolithic Yangshao culture during the fourth millennium BCE. However, due to fragility and perishability, the earliest surviving Chinese silk textiles are from the Western Han dynasty (206 BCE–9 CE). Most Chinese silk textiles that remain in good condition are from the Ming dynasty (1368–1644) or the Qing dynasty (1644–1911), and some are well preserved because they had been presented to Tibetan monasteries. During the Qing dynasty, the minority Manchu ruling class wore silks that were distinct in design and cut from those worn by the majority ethnically Han Chinese population. The finest silk produced at the imperial factories at Nanjing, Suzhou, and Hangzhou were sent to the court in Beijing to be tailored and finished.
