Today we are offering a gorgeous Victorian Chinese silk embroidered piano shawl. This piece is a lovely cream color with the embroidery done in silk in the same color. The design is an intricate combination of flowers, swirls, leaves, vines, berries, paisley shapes and dots. The amount of time represented by this hand work is unbelievable. This piece measures 46″ x 46″ not including the additional 8″ of fringe. These Chinese silk shawls were draped over the piano in fashionable homes and often worn as part of a Victorian wedding emsemble. Please see complete item description above and take a close look at all photos, as they are helpful in telling the story of this wonderful antique textile. Fresh from a Rhode Island estate.
