I have been busy attending sales all over Northern England and Scotland recently, and have found some wonderful things for you to browse through. After a much needed, major clear out of my studio, it is now filling up fast with new sale finds. Amongst the treasures are several antique Victorian bedspreads, whitework tablecloths, Victorian children’s clothes, silk shawls, 19th century wedding tiaras and veils, Valentines cards and much more. I am listing some of these this week, and will work through the boxes, laundering, inspecting, photographing and listing! Do keep looking…..

Lovely deep chocolate brown silk piano shawl, heavily embroidered with flowers, roses, birds and butterflies. When held up to the light, there is a little overall thinning of the silk around the embroidered motifs, and a few pinhead sized holes (not visible unless inspected against a light source) I can spot a few loose threads, but in general this is in good condition. The hand knotted fringe is all in good order. The embroidered motifs are stunningly lavish. The silk part of the shawl measures 170cm x 170cm + the 35cm long fringe, so 240cm x 240cm in all -big enough to use as a bedspread if wished. Lovely, flamboyant Cantonese shawl!
