B1209 - SOLD
This is a sublime vintage Chinese silk embroidered shawl dating from the mid 20th Century. It would be absolutely gorgeous to wear and would also look fabulous draped across the back of a sofa or chaise.
It has a cream background upon which is embroidered in satin stitch, a fantastic flower and leaf design in stunning shades of turquoise, candy pink, green and lilac. The silk is heavy and hangs divinely.
Around the edge of the shawl is a fabulous long, knotted & tasseled, frothy silk fringe, half in cream and half in vibrant candy pink. The effect is breathtaking!
The shawl is in excellent vintage condition. There are one or two pulled threads here and there and of course the fringe has tousled over the passage of time to achieve it's frothy appearance.
The shawl measures 84 cm (33 inches) square without the fringe. The fringe is 30 cm (11.75 inches) long giving a total size of 144 cm (56.5 inches) square.
This is an exquisite shawl to add glamour to an outfit or a room and another divine vintage textile find from La Belle Étoffe.
