Incredible cream silk piano shawl that is somewhere between 100 and 120 years old. Completely hand embroidered in silk with a large rose and flower motif is coral and pinks colors. Trimmed in a crocheted cream silk that ends in a long, dramatic fringe. The amount of work put into this shawl is remarkable!

It is in excellent condition for a textile this age and made of silk; it has three little tears, none bigger than a nickel and two tiny coffee colored stains but is otherwise very clean and bright. The silk is fragile, but it doesn't have dry rot. I would not recommend this for wear unless it's for a photoshoot or a very special evening as the fabric is quite delicate. However, if treated correctly this piece will make a beautiful focal piece in any room of your home that will last a long time, or an outstanding research piece for a design house.

*** the fringe on this shawl is tangled and will need combing and steaming. There are also a few areas on the tips of the fringe that show some minor yellowing/ degradation, though none of the fringe seems to be missing. ***

Please ask any questions prior to purchasing this piece as it is a final sale. Shipping insurance is required and included in the cost of shipping; local pickup is also available.

width: 43" x 43" not including fringe
