Chinese Heavily Embroidered Cream Silk Piano Shawl: C1910 China for European market
Dating from around 1910/20 a large cream on cream heavily embroidered silk piano shawl or manton.
The high quality of this shawl suggests it’s from Canton where the best shawls were made.
Huge silk embroidered peonies have been hand embroidered onto a silk crepe.
The shawl has been finished with a long dramatic heavy hand knotted fringe.
The shawl is in good antique condition. It has some light stains which we haven’t tried to remove and would recommend professional specialist cleaning.
Measurements: 163cm X 168cm + 21cm fringe
