A silk weaving - probably a shawl or runner once, with several section so fheavy wear but still lovely!
The good news is that the wear only affects the supplementary thread and the base is intact.
Still wearable as a stole as the worn / rubbed down areas get lost within the folds.
A lovely piece overall.
Am letting it go as I have too many textiles that are waiting for their turn to get my attention!
Priced to sell.
14 inches x 60 inches.
