Ideal for regency and victorian re-enactment this is just the sort of shawl that was being imported from India during the early 19th century and was the ultimate fashion accessory of the regency era. Empress Joshepine is rumoured to have had hundreds and I can quite undersatnd why!!. Only the very wealthy could afford such luxury, a real status symbol. This will complete your regency evening ensemble perfectly and ensure your the envy of all the ladies in attendance.

Sourced directly from India. Beautiful hand embroidered pure silk crepe antique shawl/stole in a hard to find shade of soft mauve/pink with a beautiful border design of exquisitly worked flowers with gold beaded detail. The centres of each flowerr has little strands of beads that dance about as you move giving this shawl a wonderful 3d detail. The sewing techniques and incredible workmanship are exactly the kind that was used at the time and just cannot be found in modern replicas. This is a truly unique item. A piece of this quality would take an entire household of ladies over a week to produce.

I highly recommend clicking each image once selected to get a larger view of the images and a clear view of the detailed work.

LENGTH-94 inches/238.8 cms/7.8 feet/2.6 yards/2.39 meterss
WIDTH-47 inches/119.4 cms/3.9 feet/1.3 yards/1.19 meters

Please note this is an vintage textile and despite being throughly checked for any defects it is at least 70 yrs old and cannot be expected to be in the same condition as modern mass produced items. The condition on inspection is excellent.

I have seen these wonderful shawls selling in a local shop that specialises in antique asian textiles retailing for between £80 - £200!!!
