BEAUTIFUL Original Antique Victorian Hand Embroidered Shawl Scarf Wrap Stole. A beautiful antique Victorian black silk, hand-embroidered piano shawl - or half of a piano shawl to be more precise. The shawl had sadly been cut in half when I acquired it. It is highly l ikely to have been worn by a lady in mourning. The hand-embroidery is just wonderful - it has been done so well that it is the same on both sides, and you can't tell the back from the front!
The fine silk fabric, along with the embroidery silk has a lovely sheen to it. It has fabulously long silk tassels, with hand knotted fringe. It has a frayed edge along one side, where it was cut, this could be left as is, or hemmed. There is a small tear and an area with a few small holes (please see photographs) but I don't think this detracts from its immense charm and I think it could fairly easily be fixed by the right person.
Despite the damage, it is still a very beautiful piece, which could be worn, or used with care. Measures approximately: 80" x 30" or 203cm x 76cm including the fringe/tassels. Width approximately: 20 without the fring/tassels. The fringe and tassels measure approx : 5" in the centre, graduating to 10" at the edges.A Really Beautiful Antique Piece, with issues mentioned.
