High quality 19-th Century Embroidered Sleeve bands. This is an extremely well done pair of Sleeve Bands that Date 1870 to 1880. I believe Military Official related. The stitching is in fine condition.
The design and subject and these are extremely beautiful and I would consider a rare as I tried to research another similar pair. I found nothing of this design. I have a feeling this is military related because of the different animals which includes bats FOO dogs & black panther or Leopard & lion & stag or deer and a military horse? With a shield (most bottom animal) there are no birds on these sleeves which leads me to believe this is not civilian related.
The foliage and the rocks are also well done as well as the clouds. Size overall 7 wide by 20 high when placed next to each other. This is the embroidered size.Then there is a plain band that is an extra 13 so these would be 3.5 x33 each when fully extended or 7x33 fully extended. P ayment is expected w/in 2-3 days.
