B1107 - SOLD
This is a gorgeous antique French ostrich feather boa dating from about 1890. It is in excellent condition, is very wearable and extemely glamourous.
The feathers are full and plumptious and are a delicious corally / rust colour. At each end of the boa is a gorgeous tassel of silk ribbons in a beautiful soft sage green. The colour combination is sublime.
At the top of each tassel are 2 wooden beads. The uppermost bead is covered in silk thread and the lower bead is covered with the silk ribbons which are knotted to form a mesh before they cascade down as the tassel.
The tassels are also plumptious. The silk on one of the upper beads has a little wear but this does not detract.
The total length of the boa including the tassels is approx. 172 cms (5 ft 7.75 inches)
This gorgeous boa is from a carefully selected collection of fabulous antique French textiles, accessories & decorative pieces at 'La Belle Étoffe'.
