Here's a tastefully executed tambour embroidery fichu, scarf or shawl from the middle Victorian to 1880's era.  The 40" x 42" scarf is made of a finer gauze fabric with delicate tambour embroidery work, outlining the border and two opposite corners. 

The design is rather an abstract flower with a soft feathery scroll.  Drawn or pulled thread forms the center of each of the larger flowers.  Each drawnwork center is worked slightly in a different thread pattern.

A lovely piece to admire or for reenactment costuming.  

Condition:  Although a few flaws, for the age the piece is remarkably good.  You will find a few tiny holes and a small amount of oxidation from storage.
