"Throne backs" were made for the backs of dignitaries' chairs.
Their patterns usually show dragons chasing the flaming pearl against a golden ground.
This example is different. The center field shows a beautiful field of peonies with a lotus flower and a pearl on top against a plain vermillion background.
The bottom border is defined by the holy mountain with cloud bands and water waves. A flower lattice pattern covers the scalloped and sides border.
