Beautifully embroidered black piano shawl. I believe it is rayon, but feels like heavy silk. The shawl is very large; the interior fabric portion is 44" x 44". The fringe is 24" on each side (including the 6" macrame portion), which makes the total dimensions 102" x 102".
The shawl is embroidered with large golden yellow flowers and leaves. Both sides of the embroidery are shown in the photos - the back of the embroidery looks almost identical to the front. The fringe is knotted macrame lace near the body of the shawl and finished in long silky, flowing strands.
Quite amazingly, I find no damages or wear. This shawl is at least 50 years old, but has been well cared for - it is clean and undamaged, with no odors that I can detect. It is ready to wear or display.
