1940s Black Embroidered Floral Shawl

Regular price $58.00 Sale

Lush and bohemian 1940s black shawl featuring gorgeous silk floral embroidery along both edges and hand-knit wool edging. Throw over your shoulders for a night in the moonlight. Unlined, no closures.

MEASUREMENTS:
(taken with garment lying flat)
→length: 45 inches
→width: 33 inches at widest

CONDITION: Good vintage condition. It appears as though the embroidery was drafted in a gray wool yarn and then covered with the finer silk embroidery; some of the silk was either not completed or worn away, leaving exposed wool. I've trimmed some of these areas and pigmented others to more closely match the silk. Photos are best to describe this unusual flaw, as it's not just on the "underside." It presents beautifully, but you will always have to have one side with this issue face-up when wearing as there's a small embroidery section along one side as well as the larger section near the bottom. Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.

COLOR: Black

MORE INFORMATION: No makers or content labels. Appears to be made of a rayon blend, silk embroidery and wool yarn. Dry clean only.

PLEASE NOTE: Black Cat Clothiers only accepts returns if a mistake was made in describing the garment, for which we ask you to contact us within 3 days of receiving the garment. Please compare the detailed measurements noted above to one of your garments (not your body measurements; clothing should allow room for movement) that fits you well. Please be aware all monitors display colors differently. Additionally, all of our clothing is pre-owned and vintage/antique, which means each piece may feature minor signs of wear, as noted in the description. To learn more, please view our store policies.

SHIPPING: All orders are processed and shipped within 1-3 business days, unless otherwise noted. Shipping rates are calculated by USPS at checkout and are dependent on the weight of the item(s) you've purchased in addition to packaging.
