Assuit shawl in cotton voile and gilded metal strips - Egypt Circa 1930-1940

Circa 1930-1940


An elegant black and gold shawl or stole from the Art Deco period, known as the Assuit Shawl, made in Egypt for Western fashion during the 1920s-1940s. The Egyptomania craze began in Europe after the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb in Egypt in 1922. Here, the design is striped in the centre and framed by a double border of pyramid-shaped triangles on all four sides. The technique is manual and absolutely breathtaking! It consists of a cotton voile or net entirely punched with gold-plated metal blades forming the design. In France, the great Couturiers such as Paul Poiret, Babani and Gallenga created Art Deco dresses using this precious material, which has an impeccable fluid fall. A flawless shawl, the voile is surprisingly strong to support the weight of the gilded metal. Exceptional colour and condition. Easy to wear for a refined evening.

Size: 214 cm x 91 cm.
