Exqusite Floral Embroidered Assuit Shawl

About

Never before have we seen an asuite shawl with silk Edwardian embroidery and fringe. This marks this piece as a very rare and luxurious find. The shawl is in near mint condition and is also very long for these. Made with silver in the net as dowery gifts for Egyptian brides these shawls came into vogue in western culture with the Egyptomania of the 1920s. Often times they are made into dresses and such, this has been embroidered to appeal to the western tastes.
