I'm having a moment of madness and want to clear out a lot of things in my shop to celebrate the Halloween season! Have a look in the shop section called 'HALLOWEEN' - most things you see there have already had their price cut considerably! IF YOU BUY THREE THINGS FROM THE HALLOWEEN SECTION, YOU GET THE LOWEST PRICE ITEM FOR FREE! (Just go ahead and purchase all three items and I will refund the cost of the third item immediately). Buy six items from the HALLOWEEN section and you get the lowest priced two items for free! Please note: This only applies to things in the HALLOWEEN section.

About

This is a wonderful simple black velvet German Folk Shawl from the 1930s. It has a beautiful textured relief design in the velvet. The hand-knotted fringe is very long and in excellent condition. The piece is in perfect condition as far as I see, I have examined it carefully and haven't found a flaw.

It feels wonderfully romantic draped across the shoulders. It really feels very literary and poetic! I imagine it worn with a red dress for some reason and definitely for a night out at the theater or gallery opening. Or walking along the rugged cliffs (ie 'French Lieutenants Woman'.) You have to wear red lipstick with this. I am sure there is a stylish woman out there reading this who will know exactly how to wear this; one of the great things about this piece is how versatile it is. It would also make a wonderful piece of home decor, perhaps thrown across a chair.

It is approximately 82 " x 22" (without fringe) and the fringes are about 8.6" (2.1 m long x 58 cm wide without the fringe and the fringes are about 22 cm).

This beautiful shawl will be sent to you from Berlin, well packed, by DHL or International Priority Air with a tracking number.

If you are reading this listing after it has sold and you are interested in it, do please send me a convo and I can be sure to let you know if I ever manage to find anything similar.
