Vintage Red Shawl

This vintage red shawl, purchased from an estate in Revere, Massachusetts, is truly a stunning accessory. The embroidered center design features a bouquet of flowers surrounded by birds and vines in shades of pink, blue, green and gray. The edging of the shawl is designed with stylized flowers, vines and butterflies. A seven inch knotted fringe surrounds the 41 ½” square of satin. The owner of this shawl was a lifelong devotee of the opera. How easy it is to imagine her in a beautiful black gown with this shawl drawn loosely about her shoulders as she listened to Il Trovatore’s “D’Amour s’ull `ali rosee.”
