Insignia

The official system of insignia for the Qing imperial court reached its pinnacle during the reign of the Qianlong Emperor (r. 1736-1795). Although maintained in subsequent reigns, the scheme suffered during the decline of the dynasty. The languishing system finally ended with the last emperor, Puyi (r. 1909-1911). Apart from the grandeur and extravagance of Qing dynasty insignia, the collection showcases the specific political functions of each article and reflects various regulations of dynastic governance.
