1920’s ART DECO CHINESE EMBRIODERED SHAWL PIANO SHAWL
A fabulously large hand embroidered silk shawl dating from the 1920’s in very good condition. These were produced in China for the western market, drawing on their centuries of skill in embroidery. The shawl is double sided, the photo of it on the lounge by the window is the reverse side, and as you can see it is indistinguishable from the front. I have photographed it on a double bed to give you an idea of scale. There are a few light spots on it , I have photographed one in detail.
