« Coral Silk Turquoise Dragon" Vintage 1920's Silk Hand Painted Shawl

A marvel to behold. This original 1920's coral coloured silk shawl, embellished with hand painted floral details and a statement dragon, and accented by scattered glitter features is a rare piece to behold. 
The length of the shawl is edged with a hand painted cream silk border which has been finished with a scattering of glitter. Each side of the shawl is in turn embellished with hand painted floral details, which have been accented with glitter and metallic painted details. To one extremity of the shawl, there is a feature hand painted dragon in shades of turquoise, accented by metallic paint and glitter and contoured with a stylised silver rounded medallion design. This shawl showcases the wonderful craftsmanship of the era.
