Red and gold, with dragons
According to the one of these four with its original number, the donor is Mabury, from 12/13/1935. If so, the credit line here (Huntington) is incorrect.
See remarks. This is likely a chair cover, with the ogival lotus motif placed on the seat, Fo dogs in front and dragons to the rear.
- Miss Bella Mabury also gave at least one of these to LACMA. See Velvets East & West, catalogue of 1966, plate 54. Theirs is dated 1735-1795.
