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.

Condition

Very good. There is evidence of mild colour run in a few places, see last two photos, and one tiny hole.
