Lovely, completely hand worked Chantilly bobbin lace triangular shawl.  Scalloped edges adorned with scrolls and acanthus leaves at the top and a framework of radiating scallops decorate the shorter sides.  There are impressive floral sprays of tulips, roses, hydrangea, ivy and other foliage.  A huge amount of work is in this piece!


Condition; there are quite a number of large areas where the net is damaged, and some of the stitching which joined the sections together has come undone (the latter would be fairly easy to repair).  So, without restoration this piece is not suitable for wear.

19th century.

Black in colour.

Measures approx. 292cm x 143cm (115" x 56").
