Belle Époque Swirling Scroll Scarf

store.metmuseum.org

The design on our scarf is adapted from an original dress by the French House of Worth (1858–1956) from around 1898–1900. A superb example of dressmaking, the gown exhibits the aesthetic of the last years of the nineteenth century. The fashionable reverse S-curve silhouette of the dress and the dramatic scroll pattern of the textile reflect the influence of the Art Nouveau movement, and the striking graphic juxtaposition of the curving black velvet on an ivory satin ground creates the illusion of ironwork.
Silk satin. Reversible. Imported. 59'' x 10''.
