This is an elegant addition to your dress up and hit the town wardrobe. It is 100% silk and silk lined in black. The majority of the outside is turquoise silk printed with black traditional Chinese symbols such as bamboo, writing, circles that could be lanterns and blocks of printing. The ends of the outside are solid black charmeuse.
The red embroidered "pockets" are not really pockets but more like openings to tuck your hands. Anything inserted in them will sink to the bottom of the stole.
Another feature is the addition of a black frog at the top of the black bottom pieces. It is mean to keep the stole from slipping off your shoulders and is only hand stitched on. If you don't want it a couple of careful snips will remove it safely.
If worn over the shoulders and left to drape down, the inner edge can be worn rolled over to show a black shawl type collar.
Condition is as new. Actual age unknown. Does not show signs of use.
It is 20.5 wide x 68 inches long.
This has a hand wash warm tag attached with the 100% silk made in China tag.
