Scope and content

The inside lining of the vest is made of a pink silk fabric with zigzag and floral designs on the material. The outside of the vest has a thick black silk border around both sides of the vest and the back. The background material inside this border is a blue silk fabric. This blue background also has a thin border of ribbon material that is orange with pink and blue flowers on it. Embroidered onto the front of the vest on the blue silk are a variety of picture done in a variety of colorful threading. The pictures are of teacups, flowers, bowls, butterflies, and some leaves and are intricately done. Some of these thread pictures have golden threading as accents around them. The back of the vest is one solid piece of material whereas the front of the vest has two flaps which fold onto one another so that the vest can be worn. The sides of the vest are open except for the bottom as is the neck. Attached down one of the vests front flaps is black thread with gold colored metal balls attached. These balls get hooked through loops of thread on the other flap to hold the vest closed when it is being worn.
