1920s Beaded Wrap
I love wearing a wrap in the evening. I always feel a little more glamorous throwing one end over my shoulder. This wrap will put your finest pashmina to shame. It is made from a wonderful jet black silk (perhaps silk/rayon) velvet. The decoration is made from silk chiffon. Each flower was hand cut the adorned with clear cut glass beads, and a mind-blowing amount very fine stitching to make the detail. When you see the work up close, you will be amazed. The shape is not a rectangle, but rather it is more narrow in the center, then it graduates out to the end, like the shape of a bowtie. The wrap is unlined. The edges were hand rolled and there is a tiny snap to fasten like a shawl.
The condition is excellent
It is 55" long and is 15" at the smallest and 37" at the widest in width
