Amazing Antique Turn of the Century Hand Embroidered Colourful Cotton Collar from Laos

This was purchased in Laos and my client was told that it was from the late 1800s, early 1900s. It is an incredible antique textile and the workmanship on it is fantastic. I have taken numerous photos and included many of the blue underside as I think that it is as beautiful as the embroidered top layer. At some pinto someone has added snaps to keep it closed. It also looks like it was folded and stitched at some point in its history to give it that interesting shape. Both these tweaks allow it to follow a more modern neckline better. This could all be undone if you wished. The colours are incredible. They are a bright combination of corals, pinks and blues. You can see all of the hand work that has been done on the back side of the piece. It is sold as found and truly a thing of beauty. This is one of those little treasures you only find in vintage. Excellent condition with some grubbiness to the fabric and small marls on the back. It was not cleaned because of its age bit it sound and strong.

5.5" wide and with a 15" neck opening as it is where the snaps are placed now. You could easily change them to accommodate any size
