Sublime Vintage Ivory Silk Piano Shawl Hand Embroidered Exotic Birds & Flowers    Sublime Vintage Ivory Silk Piano Shawl Hand Embroidered Exotic Birds & Flowers
This is an absolutely gorgeous. Vintage ivory coloured silk piano shawl. It is densely hand embroidered with a delicious mix of pastels and brighter coloured exotic birds and flowers. Dating from the 1950's to the 1960's It's creation was inspired by the antique Canton Export silk piano shawl.

A true fashion and decoration item in the late 19th & early 20th centuries. The piano shawl has always evoked bohemian abandon and the mysteries of the gypsy lifestyle.

This large shawl could be wonderful worn over the shoulders at a wedding or a cocktail party or used as a decoration element in your home, drapped over a sofa or a bed, it is, oh so bohemian chic! It is a clean silk square and in almost perfect condition. There are a couple of practically invisible stains that I couldn't even photograph they are not at all noticeable when the shawl is draped.

This is a large embroidered silk shawl measuring 52 inches by 51 inches. The long fringe measures 20 inches. If you have any questions please ask!
