Another stunning shawl with an ivory and black scrolling line emphasising the design, but this time with a later centre, complete with embroidered signature. Quite when this was done it is diffcult to say but from a short distance looks very good.
the black fine wool centre with white chain stitch fake signature, with applique curling foliage, the deep ends with huge elongated buteh filled with and surrounded by foliage, with an ivory scrolling line, eight colours including red, ivory, pale blue and green, apricot, magenta, black and soft, the epaulette ends embroidered, 10 ft 6 in x 4ft 8 in or 3.2 m x 1.4 m
Generally very good. As already said the black centre is later and has a fake signature. There is one slight stain 3 x 2 in or 8 x 5 cm. The embroidered epaulette end borders have had the black sections replaced and re applied embroidery. The very long edge has a few splits and a couple of repairs, which can hardly be seen. A few moth holes can be seen when the shawl is held to the light. Ask for photos.
