THESE ARE A SUBLIME PAIR OF EARLY ANTIQUE EMPEROR'S OR EMPRESSES SILK CUFFS. THEY ARE EARLY 18TH TO 19TH C. HARD FOR ME TO DATE EXACTLY BUT THEY ARE EARLY. THEY COULD BE A LITTLE LATER LIKE 1850 OR SO BUT THE LADY I GOT THEM FROM BOUGHT THEM YEARS AGO WHEN IN CHINA AND KNEW ABOUT THESE AND THOUGH THEY WERE ACTUALLY LATE 18TH C. LIKE 1780 BUT I AM BEING CONSERVATIVE. ANYWAY , THEY ARE THE FORBIDDEN STITCH AND THE WORKMANSHIP, DETAIL AND INTRICACY OF STITCHING IS OFF THE CHARTS EXCEPTIONAL. I HAVE HAD A FEW OF THESE IN MY TIME BUT NEVER LIKE THESE. THEY ARE 28" LONG AS SEEN AND IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. NO STAINS OR PROBLEMS. MY HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION. S/H/I IS $20 DOMESTIC TO CHINA IT IS $35 PLUS INSURANCE. THANKS EMAIL ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS.
