Square seventh rank civil official's badge. Probably for use on a side-fastening mourning robe because neither badge has a seam. At center a Mandarin duck looks back over its shoulder at the sun as it stands on a rock amidst gold waves. Pearls, fungus, and three other lucky symbols float in the waves. At either edge is a larger wave. Multi-colored clouds against a beige satin background. Narrow border of couched gold thread. Satin stitch, couched gold, couched wrapped threads are used. Back is lined with yellow silk.
