Description

Black net shawls with gold metallic designs. Both ends of the shawl have three large scallops. Inside the scallops two thick metallic threads trace the shape of the scallops and form a wide border that tapers as it reaches the straight sides. Inside the border thin metallic gold threads wind and twist around in a random squiggle motif. Along the straight sides of the shawl there is a single thick metallic gold thread with think metallic threads curving continuously above and below the thick thread. At both end of the shawl there are large floral motifs sewn in with both thick metallic gold threads as the outlines and thin metallic gold threads as the filler. There are three large identical flowers in the curves of the scallops tow other different large flowers inside them with a smaller daisy in the middle and there smaller daisies across the top of the whole design. The center of the shawl has no design.
