AN EXQUISITE NEEDLERUN EMBROIDERED CREAM SHAWL/VEIL. ENGLISH OR FRENCH ca.1830

This lovely shawl or veil is extensively embroidered with a wide border of urns of flowers and large single sprigs. The field is of small sprigs all over. The colour is a rich cream, although it looks much lighter in the photos.

This shawl, with it's extravagant decoration, is in complete contrast to the simplicity of a decade or two earlier, but it is beautifully worked.

The condition is excellent, with a few professional and very well executed net repairs which are hardly noticeable.

Measurements: 55" x 59"

Price: SOLD
