Mandarin Square

Silk tie Size: ca. 150 x 8 cm
100% Silk
Made in Italy

This striking tie design was inspired by a Chinese Civil Badge from the collection of the Weltmuseum Wien.
Chinese official garments showed square fabric applications with depictions of rank on front and back of overcoats. The rank of civil officials was represented by nine different bird depictions. This badge is adorned with a silver pheasant which symbolised the fifth rank whereas a crane symbolised the first rank. The birds symbolise virtues such as longevity, wisdom, courage, beauty, dignity, loyalty and goodfortune.
