Renaissance Manuscript Silk Chiffon Scarf

  • $98.00


The flower motifs on this beautiful scarf are taken from an exquisite Renaissance manuscript. The blossoms cover the central area of the scarf; on each end is a wide border of flowers, buds, leaves, and berries, in saturated shades of blue, pink, and green.

In Europe during the Renaissance, the faithful looked to nature for spiritual enlightenment and to guide their contemplation of the divine. In illuminated manuscripts made during the period, intricately painted flora was often represented as an aid to prayer and prized for its religious symbolism and medicinal value.

The scarf is beautifully made—the hems of the scarf are hand rolled and sewn, not machine stitched. The colors are bright and clear but because the scarf is chiffon, have a certain transparency. It is easily tied in a variety of ways and is large enough to wear as a light shawl.

Dimensions: 71 x 22 inches
