Description

Long, knotted silk fringe trims this 1920s evening shawl, made of lightweight black silk crepe with pink, green, and pale gold silk floral embroidery. This lovely fringed silk shawl is a large square (50” by 50”), and looks great folded in half into either a triangle or a rectangle—shown both ways in the photos. It is in very good condition, with one mend along a small section at one edge, where a single tassel is missing (see close-up photo). Also, there are a few loose threads in the floral embroidery, and the silk fringe has some tangles in it from storage, and few broken-off, shorter strands. This 100-year-old, 1920s fringe-trimmed and floral-embroidered evening shawl is in very good condition, remarkable for its age!

Size: 50” by 50” without fringe.
Fringe: 16” long
Label: none
