[ translate ]

Antique Chinese Silk Kesi Bannermen Badge, Qing Dynasty
Qing Dynasty (19th c.), gold metal and blue silk thread, in two panels, depicting a XieZhai on waves, with ruyi-shaped clouds on blue brick ground.
Kesi Silk Rank Badges, also known as "kesi bannermen badges" or "kesi civil badges," hold a special place in the rich tapestry of Qing Dynasty (19th century) China. These badges were essential symbols of one's social rank, particularly within the Qing imperial court and military hierarchy.
During the Qing Dynasty, the imperial court implemented a strict and highly structured system of social organization known as the "Eight Banners" (Ba Qi). The Eight Banners were a system of military and administrative divisions that played a crucial role in governing and organizing the Qing Empire. These divisions were further categorized into different ranks, and individuals within the banners were required to wear corresponding badges to denote their rank and status.
