Precious historic panoramas of the Shanghai bay

Chinese silk embroidered kosu
Panel, 'The Bund of Shanghai', silk. Kosu China


Miraculously perfectly preserved Kosu 
of the Shanghai bay

These magnificent Kosu present two rare views of the bay of Shanghai, early XXth century.
The amazing weaving, as only China is able to masterise, shows in photo-like details, a historical moment of the early stage of great Shanghai development.
As such, they are precious collectibles and, once re-framed, from their poor, yet original framing, they would honor a top class Shangaian office or private lounge.
