Decorative Floss Silk Hand Embroidered Delhi Shawl: C1900 India
Another lovely Delhi shawl from our collection, this one in unusual colouring of pewter grey/blue gauze with off white/cream floss silk embroidery.
Called Delhi shawls these shawls were produced in the north of India for both for the home and export markets.
This highly collectable shawl is a fine example of a shawl of its type, it is in good antique condition and has a couple of historic mends, some small breaks along the outer edges of the gauze and a couple of small age/foxing marks, and loose threads, all to be expected in an antique textile of this antiquity.
