Antique Embroidered Pale Green Silk Shawl, Wrap, With Birds, Insects and Flowers
Very long embroidered silk shawl or wrap from the 1910s or 1920s - Chinese export work. Very pale green silk charmeuse wrap is lavishly embroidered with Chinese style embroidery of birds, insects and flowers. It has a long fringe along three sides which has graduated colouring in the tones of the embroidery. Lined with similar silk. As a wrap it's long enough to reach the floor on both sides. Wear it, or hang it on the wall.
257 x 35.5 cm (101 x 14") plus a 15 cm (6") fringe on three sides.
Very good. There is evidence of mild colour run in a few places, see last two photos, and one tiny hole.
