B656 - Exquisite Antique French Embroidered Silk Piano Shawl, Tasselled Fringe
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.
