Here is a great find while in Zhuhai for Gail 

50" w x 76" tall x 18" deep.   
Bottom is 35" tall and top is 42" tall 

I did a little research on line and found a site that showed these Peking Opera Robes. 

“Python(蟒)” is abbreviation of embroidered robe, traditional play in the royal robes, there are “male python(男蟒)” and “female python(女蟒)”. The color of yellow is dressed by emperor and empress; the color of red is dressed by high capacity people; the color of green is dressed by loyal people who are red face; the color of white is dressed by honest, dedicated quiet man; the color of black is dressed by upright and outspoken people who are black face.

 Negotiations worked and she now owns this antique embroidered opera costume and quite a few other treasures we hand carried home!
