 Antique Chinese Silk Appliqué Tiger Baby Hat    Front view.

This antique Chinese silk appliqué tiger baby hat dates from the Qing Dynasty. It is all hand stitched with embroidered appliqués. This unusual shaped hand crafted hat is made of black silk with embroidered appliqués creating the face of a tiger on the front, with ear flaps and flowers decorating the sides. There is gold silk brocade fabric draping down the back with decorative black stitching. The hat is fully lined in blue silk. These hats often denote luck and peace if worn by an infant on holidays or birthdays and were sometimes thought to protect and ward off an early death. The hat measures 10 inches long, 5 1/2 inches wide and 11 inches around the face opening. It is in good condition with only minor wear. There are a few missing white whisker stitches and eyelashes gone from one eye and a couple of faint age spots on the back. This is truly a beautiful piece of antique Chinese textile art and would make for a wonderful display piece.
