This is a striking and very collectable large silk scarf, in pristine condition, designed in the 80s by Lorna B Kell, known for designing (among many other art pieces) commemorative scarves for Liberty, for Richard Allan. It is a family tree of the Royal House of Windsor, starting with the marriage of Queen Victoria to Albert of Saxe -Coburg and Gotha and ending with the generation including William and Henry. William, now the Prince of Wales following the death of her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the accession of Charles the previous Prince of Wales to the throne as King Charles III. It records all branches of the family with the names and dates of birth of the various relatives. It is in pristine condition with glossy crisp silk and would be a wonderful memento of her late Majesty and something that could be worn, or framed and hung on a wall. It is also collectable because of the designer and the Richard Allan brand. The scarf is designed in the form of a parchment scroll surrounded by ropes and tassels in gold and black on a red border. Behind the family tree is an image of Windsor Castle, reportedly her late Majesty's favourite 'home'. The edges of the silk scarf are hand rolled, invariably a sign of a quality scarf, and still plump. The names Lorna B Kell and Richard Allan are woven into the silk and the silk label remains attached to the hem.
An rare and classy silk scarf from Richard Allan, in gorgeous rich colours with a very current subject, the Royal Family and a heritage record of the births and deaths of the members of the wider Windsor family and where they fit into the family picture. It looks rich, glossy and an item of quality because it is and from a sought after brand, what's not to love. Wear it or hang it on a wall. A perfect gift for her.
It is 34"x 34"
