Material: Silk twill
Size: 30 1/2” by 30”
Condition: It is in very good condition, pre-owned, but with no staining, odour or tears - there are a couple of very tiny pinpricks, slight wear to the label and the hand rolled edge is a little uneven in a couple of places, but these are all very minor issues.
This is a wonderful vintage illustration - exceptional period scarf, great addition to a scarf collection!
