Silk Embroidered Shawl with Huge Peonies : C1920 Canton (for the European market)
A wonderful huge shawl from Canton, China made for the European market.
One of the best examples of a shawl of this kind that we’ve had in our collection.
On a black silk ground, huge luscious lipstick pink peonies have been expertly embroidered, interspersed with smaller blooms in peaches and blues with delicate, pale eau-de-nil foliage.
The shawl is finished with a deep hand knitted silk fringe.
In excellent condition for its age.
