Antique Indian Embroidered Sari Textile 5m Vintage Costume

£50.00 or Best Offer Unsold, £3.90 Shipping

Seller: pollybear43 (508) 100%, Location: Surrey , Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 273344913799 On offer here is a beautiful old elegant sari. I'm guessing 1940's or 50's and it was very likely made in Rajasthan as I bought it many years ago in Jaipur, the town famous for decorative textiles. The bottom half is hand embroidered for most of the 5 metre length. Then the embroidery goes the full width of the fabric for the last part where it shows on the body. The colours have faded beautifully to gentle red, pinks, peach and green, silver and gold. At one end you can see the colours were once brighter. The embroidery is completely intact - incredible given its age. See one pic showing this extraordinarily detailed embroidery was done by hand. I'm not sure what the fabric is -- it could be chiffon. It could be a silk/ nylon mix or something with taffeta. It's got a crisp feel to it though it's thin like net. There are 2 tiny holes in it one at each end at the top border so probably where it was pinned to be worn. There are a very few tiny light marks on it too which might well wash out if you knew how to launder such an amazing fabric! Postage at cost. Sorry, no returns unless the item was misdescribed. Original/Repro: Vintage Original, Sub-Type: Sari, Age: Post-1940, Primary Material: Chiffon, Region of Origin: Indian, Product: Textile
