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 understand why!!. Only the very wealthy could afford such luxury, a real status symbol of the time. This will complete your regency evening ensemble perfectly and ensure your the envy of all the ladies.

Sourced directly from India. Beautiful hand embroidered shawl in red 100% pure silk . Featuring gold & silver dori work, gold and silver dabka work, gold zardozi work, white pearl like beads alongall four edges are highly decorated the shawl also features scrolling floral threadwork across the shawl.

The sewing techniques and incredible workmanship are exactly the kind that was used at the time and just cannot be found in modern replicas. Shawls like this where generally created in small rural villages and would take a entire household of ladies (5-6 women) up to a week to produce making this is a truly unique item.

These beautiful items I am told have so much pure metal threadwork in them that many are being being burned and melted down for the pure metals worked onto them so this is a fantastic oppurtunity to own and increasingly rare piece of history and a true heirloom piece to pass on.

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-84 inches/213.4 cms/7 feet/2.33 yards/2.13 meters
WIDTH-33 inches/83.8 cms/2.8 feet/0.93 yards/0.84 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!!!
