Antique Delhi shawl worked in silk on a fine gauze.

The shawl is richly embroidered with a magnificent profusion of flowers: three plants contained in frames reminiscent of cartouches are covered in blossoms, with a feather-like leaf topping each arrangement. They are framed by an equally richly embroidered floral border in the same colour scheme. The thus embellished ends are 62 cm deep, so the abundance is enhanced by the large scale of the embroidery. The border is continued around the plain gauze the transparency of which further underlines the wonderful quality of this textile.

A fine yellow border couched down in black silk forms the outer edges which are finished off by multi-coloured silk tassels at both ends.

An extremely elegant shawl of superb quality.
