B656 - SOLD
This is an exquisite antique French embroidered silk shawl dating from the early 1900's. It is very tactile and hangs divinely.
The silk is very fine and is in a sublime shade of antique cream beautifully hand embroidered with a matching cream silk thread. In each of two opposing corners is a large satin stitch worked area with a Chinoiserie Chrysanthemum and trailing leaf design.
Around the edge of the shawl is a fantastic long, tasselled, frothy silk fringe.
The shawl would be gorgeous to wear but would also look fabulous draped across the back of a sofa or chaise.
It is in excellent condition with a few tiny marks which you would have to search to find.
The shawl measures 140 cm (55 inches) x 130 cm (51.5 inches) without the fringe. The fringe is 50 cm long giving a total size of 240 cm (110 inches) x 230 cm (103 inches).
This is an exquisite shawl to add glamour to an outfit or a room and another divine antique French textile find from La Belle Étoffe.
