Spectacular antique Delhi hand embroidered tulle shawl, cream silk. A superb antique shawl dating from the first half of the 19th century. Hand embroidered in cream floss silk on cream tulle. The edges have a fine silk fringe.
The tulle is virtually covered in embroidery & the over all effect is magnificent. On close inspection there are some carefully stitched repairs & a small area of tiny breaks in the tulle. I have tried to show any issues so please do examine the pictures carefully.The flaws are not obvious in real life & you have to be searching to find them. This remains a really special piece, worthy of any collection.
It could be worn, with care obviously, & would be wonderful for a wedding or other special occasion. 76 or 195 cm square. If you need to make other arrangements, please get in touch & I can alter the listing requirements.
