Amazing Austrian Secessionist Hand Crochet Shawl

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Amazing Austrian Secessionist Hand Crochet Shawl in the most extraordinarily vibrant tones of rayon yarn. Figural motifs such as abstracted flowers, leaves and birds (parrots) are found all over this hand made shawl from the period of the Weiner Werkstatte.
This shawl is cut as a huge semicircle with long pale rasberry rayon fringe. The workmanship and colorations are amazing, a period masterwork of the Fiber Arts. From a distance, the motifs seem almost pixelated by the construction of crochet work chosen.
The sophisticated, yet graphically childlike patterning of the Art Deco motifs are reminiscent of Gustav Klimt's iconic images of women of the same period.
Austrian 1920's. Excellent condition.
