Exquisite Antique French Heavily Embroidered Piano Shawl. This beautiful piano shawl has been embroidered with flowers, butterflies and birds, all done in cream silk thread onto a cream silk ground. It is difficult to capture all the types of birds in just a few photos.

Please look at the photos and find the parakeets, swallows, starlings and turkeys! One corner depicts a pair of swans, another has a butterfly. I believe this would have been used as a wedding shawl, there are so many lovebirds on it! With beautifully worked flowers and butterflies, it would be perfect for a bride nowadays.

The corners are slightly rounded so my measurements are approxiamate. Each side measures 44 inches, the fringe is 15 inches deep so overall measurements are 74 inches x 74 inches (188 x 188cm). There are negligible faults on this shawl, very difficult to see, last 2 photos are close ups of the faults I have found. Tracked Post and Packing: International outside of.

I will post worldwide, please contact me for costs. Please see my other items. My antique and vintage items, including linens and fabrics, may show signs of their previous life, storage etc. I do point out holes and major marks, some items may show signs of storage in varying degrees, this is to be expected of items which may have been unused for many years.
