A small number of Chinese textiles were based on European “bizarre” silk designs. This example combines a sophisticated mélange of lush flora and fantastic architectural features—elements that periodically appeared in European silks from about 1695 to 1720. The gilt-paper-wrapped thread woven into the fabric is uniquely Chinese, but the cloth’s narrow loom width is the same as that of many eighteenth-century European dress silks.
