Rare 1920s Gold Thread Lame Shawl or Scarf

Showstopping and highly collectible, this 1920s real metallic gold thread lame shawl is a masterpiece and really a work of art. The entire surface has a beautiful floral print woven directly into the fabric and I love that the blossoms range dramatically in size. Very unusual and stunning in person. Marvel at the close up shots and know that it is still 100% better in person! The fluidity of the fabric cannot be conveyed and it has a rich, luxurious feel to it. The lame is strong and wearable and is a very high end. Excellent, museum quality and rare.

This was lovingly stored properly and looks almost new despite being almost 100 years old. There are a couple small areas of light tarnish to the thread here and there but this is natural patina and only adds to the beauty of this fabric. There is a well done repair that is about 6" down off one edge. I only noticed it when I laid it out flat - you would never notice it otherwise as it was properly done.Priced accordingly
