For sale is a really nice vintage large silk scarf with a theme that may be depicting a fox hunt. There are riders on horseback, some blowing horns and lots of dogs bounding around.
The color scheme and bold design of this scarf is very attractive.
This scarf would look gorgeous framed.
Please note that this scarf has at least two stains on it and does need to be cleaned. I do not know a dry cleaners who does a good job, so will leave this to the buyer.
The scarf also has some pulls in it.
On the top left hand corner of the scarf, there is a light water type stain on the border. The stain measures approximately 1.5 inches long and 1 inch wide. This stain is light and hard to see.
On the top right hand corner of the scarf there is a stain that looks something spilled on the scarf. The stain looks to be right on top of the silk. This stain is darker than the other stain.
This stain measures approximately 3 inches long by .25 of an inch wide.
Please see the last photos for a visual of the stains.
There is a long pull in the scarf at several inches over from the bottom right hand side of the scarf.
The pull measures approximately 14 inches long.
There is another small pull located on the top right hand side of the scarf, a few inches over. This pull measures approximately 2 inches long.
At the lower left hand side of the scarf, there are a couple of short pulls and a tiny hole near the hem.
None of these pulls detract from the beauty of the scarf, in my opinion.
The scarf has very vivid colors, so hand washing may cause the colors to run, so dry cleaning may be a better option.
The scene is very detailed and the colors are very attractive and very vivid.
The horses in particular are very well done.
The silk of the scarf has a nice weight to it, and appears to be silk twill.
This scarf measures approximately 33 inches across, by 34 inches tall.
The hems are hand stitched and rolled towards the back of the scarf.
There are no labels on this scarf at all.
