SLK 00138

RARE Soviet Leader Malenkov Silk

This is a most unique and rare silk in that it does not feature a Chinese leader, but rather the actual successor to Stalin in the USSR - Georgi Maksimilianovich Malenkov. It is simply a fantastic example that probably was produced somewhere between 1953 and 1955, during the short tenure of his premiership. Also showing it's age is the fact that traditional Chinese characters were used rather than the later developed simplified characters.

This is the only one we have ever seen in 10 years in China!
