Cultural Revolution Ho Chi Minh Silk Brocade

This is a Chinese produced silk portrait of Vietnamese leader, Ho Chi Min, president of North Vietnam from 1954 to 1969, and a great friend to the Chinese. This was produced at the Hangzhou East is Red Silk Factory, a clear reference to the Cultural Revolution era in which it was produced.

The brocade stated measurements are 27cm x 40cm, although actual measurements including the border are slightly larger. It has a number of stains that can be seen in the photo. Steam cleaning has proven to be effective on some silks to remove stains. There are no holes or tears.
