This is the most exquisite 1920's panel. It is a beautiful profusion of bead work hand worked onto a fine net and then backed with linen and chiffon which is a lovely peach colour. The panel is embroidered and heavily beaded and from my experience is very Egyptian revival in style. It has been backed in peach chiffon then the top half of the panel backed in a heavier linen. The lower half of the panel has been joined on and at the very bottom are strings of tiny beads hanging. The bead work is exquisitely worked and must have taken hours of painstaking labour. The panel measures 29 inches in length with a further 6 inches of hanging beads. It measures 4 inches in width and widens to 5.5 inches at the bottom of the panel. There is also an extra little small panel that is the same bead work and this measures 5 inches by 3 inches. This panel would look wonderful reworked into a Egyptian revival flapper dress with the small panel appliqued on a hand bag perhaps?
