Shawl

Description

Narrow black silk shawl with embroidered flowers and long fringe. The majority of the shawl is a plain black silk, but at both ends there are four embroidered flowers. The outer most two flowers are the largest and are red flowers with greenery surrounded by smaller yellow and red flowers on one side. The inner two flowers are smaller and are red and yellow with greenery. At both ends of the shawl there are two rows of knots and a long black fringe extends from the last knots. The shawl is not quite reversible, but it does appear that someone tried to make the back appear as finished as the front.
