Very Fine Antique Gold Thread Silk Brocade Shawl

From India an extremely fine gold thread silk dupatta shawl.

Hand woven in black silk this shawl dates from the late 19th or early 20th century and is a very fine example of its type. The decorative border has a very detailed design with elephants, horses and other animals.

This is a really fine, high quality example of this sort of handwoven silk, which was also used to make saris, probably from Benares, India where the best saris were produced.

This would make a lovely addition to a collection or would be a wonderful gift for someone special.

Measurements: 

210 x 54 cm plus 5cm fringe

In excellent condition we think this shawl may never have been used and it is in near perfect condition. There is some minor discolouration to the surface of the gold thread. Nothing noticeable and the shawl is as wearable now as it was the day it was made.
