Hand Embroidered in the most exquisite Silk thread in Vibrant and iridescent jewel colours, all executed in the forbidden stitch. The shawl has been kept within an estates heirloom private collection and carefully stored in a linen chest since just after it was created.
It was last worn in 1923 for a wedding and then stored.

Measurements are as follows;
Approx Length; 100 inches
