Thank you for shopping with April's Vintage Mercantile! It has been difficult to date this item, but I believe it dates from the 1920's. If you want further information on how I came to the date on this garment, please message me. Gorgeous ecru silk forms the basis for bright red, pink, and green machine embroidery with a touch of yellow. Matching silk fringe is a whopping 18 long.Shawl itself measures 52" x 46". Shawl is in good condition. There are a couple of spots on the silk (pictured) that will get lighter with cleaning, but will probably not come out completely.
The fringe is a little wiry on the ends, but not tangled and this can be easily fixed. There are a couple of spots where the embroidery floss has been snagged, but no missing embroidery sections. I have a degree in textiles and apparel along with a background in fabric and garment conservation.
I have performed the following conservation techniques. Garment has been vacuumed to remove dust. If I find your offer too low, I will always counter offer.
Never fear sending me an offer! I believe that the customer is better served by having the item dry cleaned once they receive it.
