~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today I have also listed a smaller lace shawl of antique origin, with no damage found at all.

However, when compared, I feel that this one is far finer.

I am not a lace expert, but the feel of this piece is very lightweight and beautiful.

I think it is probably silk.

The design is completely Art Nouveau, so I would date it to the 1880-90's period.

The central picture to the centre back is of foxgloves, climbing very high, and surrounded by other flowers.

Just lovely!

A very large shawl, of triangular form, there are several quite large repairs to the lower back. To me, this signifies that someone in the past has really tried to preserve it.

The repairs are done by the application of black net ground to the damaged areas. They do not appear particularly fine repairs and it may be possible to improve them.

Despite this, I consider that this is a lovely piece of lace, something I rarely say about black lace [which often appears the same to me, despite the many different types] Apart from the repairs, I have found a single small hole, but may have missed something as this is so big.

I would think this is better with a collector than for re-enactments.

112" x 83" x 83" approx.

Please do take a look in my shop if you have the time!
