Juschi silk shawl-size scarf, c.1980
This dazzling silk scarf by Juschi was purchased by a New York art collector on a shopping trip to Italy. She saw it as a wearable painting that would make a beautiful evening accessory. The scarf is fashioned from heavy silk crepe and is finished with a hand-rolled hem.
The print is a stunning dreamscape of a group of exotic wild fowl. The subtle details reinforced by bold colors make a dramatic design statement.
The large shawl size would also be ideal over a coat: a brilliant scarf as the emblem of a woman of luxurious and sophisticated taste. The shawl has an attached label that reads "Juschi/Made in Italy/Milano,Mucnchen."
The condition is excellent. It looks like it was never worn.
It measures 55" by 54".
