This is a stunningingly beautiful early 20th century ivory bridal lace shawl that is so long, it can be worn in a variety of ways to complement a wedding gown or evening outfit! It drapes perfectly however it is worn and not only is it an outstanding 'something old' piece for a wedding but this could be worn again for a special occasion and be an special heirloom to cherish for future generations!
- Profusely embroidered on net throughout in rows following the length of the shawl: roses, small daisy like flowers and scrolling leaves. The edges all round are scalloped and embroidered in finer thread again with intermittent daisy flowers
- Each end of the shawl has a matching feature panel of even more elaborately embroidered flowers, scrolling designs and leaves
- The condition is very good given the age & fine threads of some areas of the embroidery. I have made a small number of pinhole size repairs and two repairs of approx. 1/4 -1/2cm both of which blend with the embroidery and are not detectable other than on very close inspection
- The dimensions of this shawl are a huge 95ins x 12.75ins with the end panels tapering to 14ins wide. So this shawl is over 2m in length!
