Rare antique embroidered bird of paradise & flora huge shawl

Rare antique embroidered bird of paradise & flora huge shawl

An exceptional top quality embroidered silk on silk Chinese piano shawl, all over exotic floral, tendrils & bird of paradise design in many vibrant colours/shades on black, long elaborately hand knotted silk fringe c 1920.

The ground silk is a true dense black, the long fringe is a little tangled but otherwise I cannot find anything amiss with this wonderful  period shawl. The embroidery is as good on the back as the front, clever shading. 

Huge & very heavy,measures: 67" x 67" plus 8" knotting +18" = 26" long fringe all around. Please note detailed embroidery - this is a stunning example of the embroiderer's art. Overall in excellent wearable condition - no holes, rot, fade, missing fringe, colour run or stains.

Please do send your email address if you require more pics/info. SOLD

Overseas mailing prices are RM 'signed for' delivery including full insurance. UK post insured next day special delivery. This shawl is very heavy over 2 kilo rule so please note overseas buyers - if I have significantly overestimated the shipping cost you will be refunded.

For shipping more than one item please contact me before payment so I can reduce the shipping price of extra items.
