Original Victorian Civil War Era Chantilly Lace Shawl Mantle :
This is a lovely Victorian Chantilly Lace Shawl. It has rounded back with scalloped edges and long front which tapers to thin and then has lovely large beautiful panels of lace. The lace is amazing, full of delicate intricacies and true craftsmanship. Delicate but not fragile, this amazing piece of work has been well stored through time and presents with few flaws. Amazing for a Haute Couture look or amazing true to period piece. Measurements are: 13" from back of neck to hem, 2-1/2" across at thinnest part of panel, 13" across at large bottom part of panel and roughly 130" from one end to the other.I tried to photograph all flaws and they are as follows: three 1/8" breaks/holes, three 1/4" holes/breaks, one of scalloped edge has break in outer stitching, one of scalloped edge has threads that are loose, have come unraveled? and follows into pattern to flower?, in same area on other panel, the panel was stitched together at the thin part of shawl and there is a 2-1/2" seam?(just noticed this and have to add pic), otherwise awesome and beautiful!
Please email with any questions and I am helping a local seller liquidate a collection of men's, women's and children's clothing and accessories from 1930 and prior....lots of stuff...lace, buttons, parasols, undergarments, hats, antique fashion publications, etc.... More to come! If you are looking for something in particular, please feel free to contact me and I will try to list those items first. Be sure to add me to your favorites list! *INTERNATIONAL buyers-PLEASE NOTE*-I am signed up for Global Shipping Program. If you are interested in having me ship item directly, please email me ahead and I will see what I can do (in most instances, shipping to Canada is easy direct), however, keep in mind at end of sale, if we are not going to utilize GLOBAL SHIPPING, YOU NEED TO REQUEST AN INVOICE FROM ME as the invoice generated automatically includes Global shipping fees, etc, if item qualifies. If you pay that, I cannot get you out of it until the item is delivered, which means you will have to pay up front twice for shipping and then get refund after delivery if you want shipped direct. Also, I am not able to mark parcels as GIFTS or for less value than sold for for customs, so please do not ask. Lastly, I have to send items Express in some instances because it is the only way to provide the tracking required by PayPal. If you know of a way to ship for less, I am open to suggestions as I am not an expert on International Shipping and may not be aware of something you know. Thank you.
