Fine as a spider web and light as a feather these hand made French Bayeux Chantilly shawls are the unsung masterpieces of the 19thc. The black mourning shawls made popular by Queen Victoria and her 40 years of mourning.The drawing of the design elements and the fineness of the materials create a shawl of unparrelled ethereal beauty. The designs seem to float in the air. I have listed two this week both from same estate. This one is very good with 3 areas with the connecting stitch (pt de reccroc) is out, see images. Measures 116" long along top edge and 54" from top edge to point. KEEP IN MIND ANTIQUE AND VINTAGE ITEMS DO NOT HAVE SIZE/FABRIC CONTENT LABELS.
