Suitable for Gothic, Steampunk, Reenactment or mourning costuming, this is an antique 19th century Victorian black Chantilly lace mourning veil, shawl or wrap.
This spectacular piece of wearable art measures 159" in length and is 27" wide tapering to 19" wide at the rounded corners.
A 4" ruffle edges the entire piece. A flora pattern doiminates the center lace fabric, with the motif of the ruffle pointed leaves, swags and flora.
The condition is very good considering the age, with only a few minor pin dot holes.
