Haute Couture Embroidered Silk Mantilla – Garros Estate, 1900s



Despite being over a century old, this intricate mantilla is as colorful and perfect as the day it was made. Similar in complexity to a piano shawl but half the traditional size (and twice as delicate) it is one of the most exquisite we have ever seen. Entirely handmade, its subtle color, delicate workmanship recalls designs by Maison Lesage. *From the personal collection of Mme. Gilberte Garros, sister of French war aviator and French Open namesake Roland Garros.* Spanish mantilla of black silk net with embroidered flowers in varying shades of pink, violet, lime green, gold and aqua. Scalloped edge with 13” black silk fringe around entire perimeter. fabric: silk noteworthy: dry clean only alterations: none condition: excellent measurements: 35” x 40” not including 13” fringe label: no label present
