Fragment of an Antique Kashmir Shawl masterpiece
Pink Field with Silk work
Superbly executed Botehs & Flowers in a very very pleasing palette
Natural Silk thread used in the ends.
One end has more wear than the other. Damage was mainly in the form of weakened threads and tears. Has a silk backing expertly added to support the very fragile shawl fragment. May have been shortened.
Estimated to be from the late 1800s or early 1900s
