The colours of the hand-embroidery are still vibrant with no fading at all, and exceptional really considering its age. The only aspects to note are that there are a very few broken threads to the embroidery and some tiny tiny marks, but not many at all, and nothing really for an item of this vintage. No tears or wear I can find at all.

The photos were mostly taken with a flash set-up which doesn't do justice to the incredible colours, but I wanted to illuminate the item sufficiently well to highlight any defects. The fringing looks a little dirty in some of the shots, but it's not. All in all, the shawl is in wonderful condition. The shawl measures 1.56m x 1.56m, and then on top of this the macramé is an additional 16cm all around the edges, and with the fringe combined with the macramé the border is an additional 45cm.

Please do get in touch if you have any questions. With a one metre rule to give scale. Thought I would add a few shots taken under natural light (albeit gloomy and wintry).
