This was found at an estate yesterday and the gentleman who we purchased this from said his father owned a pawn shop back in the 1940's-50's and took this in on pawn back then. This piece is quite large and measures like 4 feet across and weighs what feels like 25-30 pounds. I have seen similar style silk items like this but they have all been way smaller in the 18"-25" inch range this one is just huge but it would be cool to find out who would have owned one of such size. It is dated 1907 and the detail is amazing for being as old as it is.
