Lovely large c.1920s Canton or piano shawl, with white floral embroidery on black. 

Surrounded by a macrame border, and nice deep tassel fringe. The embroidery is scrolling vines for the border, with larger floral motifs in the central panel.
Measures: body of shawl approx 49 to 50” square. The fringing adds another 25” all the way around.
Condition: I found a number of brownish age marks, which I’ve not attempted to remove (see photo). Only a couple are really obvious but I’ve tried to show everything I’ve found. Generally very good overall, with only very minor straggles to the embroidery. Fringing and body of shawl very good.
