Dancer's Collar

50.31.95
Collar for a black hat dancer's robe, in beautiful, high quality Tibetan-style brocade silk. The collar is cut in a diamond shape with scalloped edges, the edges bound with a faded orange brocade with gold threads. The outer border is in a heavily patterned green brocade with additional gold threads and the centre is of an orange-coloured silk with similar patterning. The opening is simply created with a circle and additional slit in the centre. The back is lined with a fine navy blue silk. There is a mark in orange pencil to the back of the neck which in Tibetan appears to note '40', this is possibly an inventory number for the treasury the collar was taken from.
