Original Description:
Antique Chinese Yellow Damask Silk & Needle-Worked Informal Women's ROBE
Late 19th Century - 1870 to 1900

This robe is in very good condition (see all the pictures below).
Note that all the pictures below can be supersized for a closer look.

It measures 56 1/2" from the end of one sleeve to the end of the other sleeve.
It is 41" from the collar to the bottom.
There are a couple of areas that seem to have been professionally cleaned:
I noted faint traces... of a stain on the left front shoulder and also continuing on the back (see 5th and 13th pictures below).
There is also one such area under the collar (see 2nd picture below).

The silk is not brittle or dry rotted. It is supple and in great condition.
There are no cuts or tears to the silk.
As can be seen in the pictures, the silk panels that compose the robe are detached from each other in some spots.
There is the seam in the middle and then two smaller seams on the sides.
The same is true in the back of the robe.
The last eight pictures below show close-ups of the seams between those silk panels.
First four pictures is for the front and last four pictures is for the back.
There is a thread that holds the panels together, and due to handling, the thread broke off in some spots.
It should not be technically difficult or time consuming to fix that and bring back the robe to its original state.

Note that eBay recently entered into a partnership agreement with an expert in Asian arts.
Every item listed in the Asian antiques category now has a "Second Opinion" button/link that says "Ask an Asian Antiques Expert".
The link takes the prospective eBay bidder to the website of Asian arts expert Peter Combs bidamount.com where people can fill a form and ask for an assessment of the item they are interested in.
I have already submitted this item to Peter Combs and I used his expert advice in creating the title of the listing and in dating the robe.
