1920s Vivid Embroidered Silk Piano Shawl

About

A spectacular and huge embroidered silk Chinese export shawl from the twenties.The floral design is particularly bright and vivid and offset by that black silk backdrop. The embroidered design of flowers is very beautiful and in a myriad of colors. Very dramatic and so wearable - you can use it as an evening cape or coat by adding a well placed brooch or use it in your home as a show-stopping accessory. The stitching appears to be primarily machine stitch with some finishes done by hand. It is edged all the way around with a 22" inch hand knotted silk fringe border. The fringe is in good overall condition with minor wear the the ends as photoed.The inner silk embroidered square measures 55" x 55" making at a total of 99" square! This was lovingly stored properly and is in excellent condition despite being almost 100 years later. Any wear is natural patina and only adds to the beauty of this fabric. Modern Sizing Equivalent: OSFA This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.
