This is a lovely vintage ivory coloured pure silk piano shawl.

It most likely dates from the 50's or 60's
Perfect for a wedding or a period reenactment.
This is really bohemian chic!In the book Unpacking Culture, author and assistant curator at the V&A
Verity Wilson says of antique piano shawls that
"they represent all that is fiery, risqué, seductive and sensuous.
Anything apart from the ordinary."
She also claims that these shawls are imbued with
"a mix of gypsy abandon and a promise of the east"The embroidered piece measures 55 inches x 54 inches
it is clean with no tears or holes,
this shawl is in excellent condition and the ivory colour could be worn with anything! Or it could be a lovely deco detail, just as it was in the 1920's
oh so elegant!
