B1106 - SOLD
This is a fabulous antique French black ostrich feather boa dating from about 1890. It is in excellent condition, is very wearable and extemely glamourous.
The feathers are full and plumptious. At each end of the boa is a gorgeous tassel of silk ribbons. At the top of each tassel are 2 wooden beads. The uppermost bead is covered in silk thread and has a delicate silk mesh overling it. The lower bead is covered with the silk ribbons which are knotted to form the mesh before they cascade down as the tassel. One of the tassels is slightly more plumptious than the other but this does not detract.
The total length of the boa including the tassels is approx. 180 cms (5 ft 11 inches)
This fabulous boa is from a carefully selected collection of gorgeous antique French textiles, accessories & decorative pieces at 'La Belle Étoffe'.
