Egyptian pale green net shawl with silver metal.
Green cotton net with silver metal pieces applied in geometric patterns. Large and heavy. The textile appears to be a coiled structure reminiscent of sprang and the metal bits are individually applied. One long side is a selvedge, the other three are hand-whipped.
