1920s Silk and Lame Printed Vintage Stole Shawl
1920s Silk and Lame Printed Vintage Stole Shawl

This is a 1920s stole – rectangular rather than square. It is fringed on all edges, though. The fabric is an oyster toned jacquard silk with gold lame leaf fronds woven throughout. Down the center of the stole runs a band of fronds printed in red, green and yellow. As you can see, the fringe is quite deep and hand knotted.

Label: none

Size: Width: 34“, Length: 52”, plus depth of fringe: 19”

Condition: There are two repairs. These are areas that were backed with a toned silk organza and the threads couched down. Both front and back of the areas are shown. The one near the hem edge is 5.5” long, the other is 10” up from the other end of the shawl and is 4” X 2.5” in an irregular shape. One long side of the shawl was hand sewn in a tuck to narrow the piece. This has been unpicked and steamed, but crease lines show. The fringe has been untangled and steamed, there are several thin tassels and as usual for this type of shawl, the fringe edges are a bit frayed.
A good piece for re-enactors or wear.
