This beautiful textile has it all! A 1920s silk shawl made of a black georgette silk bordered with black silk satin. The georgette is embroidered throughout with silver metallic thread in a classic art deco leaf pattern. The leaves are also bordered with tiny glass bugle beads. Bold, dramatic, heavenly! It is in fantastic condition overall without any fading, stains, holes (other than a pin hole or two) or unpleasant odors. There are a couple of areas around the leaves where there are missing bugle beads and a loose thread here and there (please see detail photos). There is variation to the color of the silver thread; it is hard to determine if it is intentional or perhaps a tarnishing. In any case it gives an interesting dimension and texture to the leaf patterns.
