SOLD -- 1920s Ivory Silk Hand Embroidered Asian Motif Piano Shawl
This product is unavailable
What was once invented as a decorative piece to protect and cover a piano quickly became a fancied wardrobe staple among young flappers in the 1920s. From Norma Talmadge to Ziegfeld Girls, ladies around the world were grabbing these beautifully embroidered silk shawls out of the parlor and wearing them as wraps and dresses for a fringe-filled night out on the town.
Unlike the more common floral motifs that were popular among these shawls, this lovely piece has a vibrant and colorful Asian scene.
Measurements: 55" x 58"
Shawl has two very small holes near the edge, which could easily be repaired. It also has a number of small faint stains along the edge and a few within the embroidery, which are less visible given the busy, colorful pattern. Does not overly detract from the beauty of this piece. Priced accordingly.
