Exquisite Antique Victorian French Chantilly Lace ShawlMantilla Silk-22.5"x102". FABULOUS Find from my recent trip to Belgium!!
I found this at the famous Tongren Market in Belgium. Circa 1800s, a very beautiful large hand made Chantilly lace rectangular lace veil, shawl or Mantilla. This shawl has been made with the finest thread, light in the hand and is quite ethereal. The design is quite beautiful, with large scale bouquets of elaborate flowers and leaves.
The design has ornate scroll work throughout and has a gentle scalloped edges. One could say poetry in motion as one can only imagine the great skill of the lace maker and of course the designer. It is made of an off white/ivory silk. In quite amazing condition for its age there are no stains or holes (as shown).
Approx Measurements- 102" long and 22.5" wide. This wonderful item would be spectacular on display or worn as the perfect accessory for a night on the town. Thank you for shopping Forever Chic Textiles! Vintage clothing is worn/pre-loved and has sometimes been in storage for a number of years.
I will describe any flaws that I notice. All vintage clothing is bound to have a trivial flaw here or there. Majority of pieces I list are between 30 and 80 years old and will have normal wear indicative of their age. I may miss something super minor that does not effect the overall look of the piece in any way.
I want YOU to enjoy the unique and lovely pieces that I offer to you. My merchandise is collectible and is not new and has lived a long and eventful life. We do not launder or dry clean unless stated in listing, and most times have been in storage for many years picking up old age storage oxidation spots.
