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 in attendance.

Sourced directly from India. Beautiful hand embroidered shawl in a very very hard to come by shade of 'Cadbury' purple made of 100% pure silk chiffon with a hand embroidered border trim of flowers, leaves and traditional Paisley motifs in turquoise, pink, red and gold metal threadwork. This is a lovely delicate and elegant shawl in a much sought after colour. This wont be around for long!!

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.

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

Measurements - 38x84“

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!!!
