Drop dead gorgeous original c.1885 Victorian shawl that weighs roughly 3 pounds. Hand sewn jet beads with no holes are rips. All the hooks are there with only three adjoin latches missing. If there are any beads missing I cannot tell after methodical examination.
The intricate detail that went in to making this masterpiece is something to behold. The shawl was stored away in a cedar chest for decades wrapped in Onionskin paper.
It's FAB !!! It's Steampunk !!! It's the REAL DEAL !!!
