Annamese Mandarin Square. Silk. Embroidered. Purchased from J. S. Letcher, 52-23-102. University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology © 2016 Penn Museum Annamese squares were made on red satin background; Chinese official squares almost never. Chinese squares had naturalistic or heraldic birds; Annamese squares had rather fanciful ones.
