Antique White Silk French Knot Embroidered Tassel Piano Shawl Cloak Cape
This antique Edwardian era white silk French knot embroidered tassel piano shawl cloak cape dates from 1910. It is made of a off white ivory color silk fabric, with beautiful hand done raised padded satin stitch embroidery work and decorative French knot stitching done in shades of red, pink & purple. There is a lush foliage floral vine leaf design done throughout, with a variety of flowers. This beautiful long cloak cape was custom made and created from an antique Manton Canton Chinese Cantonese style Spanish Flamenco piano shawl, with hand knotted macramé off white silk fringe trim edging and wonderful tassel trim accents hanging down the back. It has an open front with tassel tie closure and an embroidered fold over long lapel collar. The cape measures 38 inches long in the back, 42 inches along the sides and has a 56 inch circumference. It is in good wearable condition, with only a small faint age spot stain & tiny pin hole on the side front drape near fringe (see close-up). This is truly a rare and extraordinary piece of wearable textile art!
