Victorian Black Woollen Bustle Shawl.
Hand Embroidered in the most exquisite Silk thread in Vibrant and iridescent jewel colours, all executed in a very fine stitch. The shawl has been kept within an estates heirloom private collection and carefully stored in a linen chest since approximately 1929.
This is a home made and very naive and simple shawl, more suited to a working crofter or fisher woman.
Although very beautiful it does show distinct signs of her age.
There is a repair, and also a few of the tassels are missing too, and a small tear to one edge-please see photos, but there are no other holes or damage
The corners are square and are expertly hand finished on all edges, with a hand knotted fringe
Measurements are as follows;
Approx Length; 62 inches
Approx Depth; 60 inches
The fringe is 3” in length.
The shawl is freshly and professionally dry cleaned and is ready to wear
