Marcello Nizzoli was an Italian designer best known for his 1930's Compari ads, later he designed for the Olivetti typewriter company. Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) did an exhibition of some of his work.

What is not well known about Nizzoli (spelled with a backwords N) that in his early years he worked for some couture fashion houses. And it is said, one of his muses was Josehine Baker. This shawl is extremely RARE, black silk with floral hand embroidery that appears the same on either side. Out of the flowers emerge human dancer abstract figures, design is very Art Deco! In black embroidery(it is very hard to photograph) Nizzoli has signed the scarf with his emblem. This is an incredible piece the best I have seen. The shawl is excellent condition no holes or weakness, there are a few whitish smudge spots they do not look permanent very hard to notice. I have not had the shawl cleaned.
