Postcrossing Tuesday

This is a postcard I received through Postcrossing from Tuovi in Finland. The oversized postcard is from the Waino Aaltosen Museo (there should be double dots over some of those vowels!) in Turku. This is the Court Uniform of the Empress, blue silk satin embroidered with gold, Collection of Shenyang Palace Museum. No year or dynasty is given.

Gosh, what a beauty! One of my favorites.
