Smithsonian Institution Exclusive

This elegant navy and shimmer-gold Birds of Brilliance Silk Scarf reflects the extraordinary beauty of James Whistler’s original dual-peacock mural on the south wall of the Peacock Room. An asymmetrical design featuring one intricately patterned border, this luxurious 100% silk satin scarf with hand-rolled hem is hand-screen printed. Imported.
Decorated by artist James McNeill Whistler in a “harmony of blue and gold” featuring peacock murals and peacock-inspired patterns, this London shipping magnate’s dining room was purchased in 1904 by Charles Lang Freer. Installed in his Detroit home to display his collections of antique Asian ceramics, he later donated the room and his ceramics to our Freer Gallery of Art.
71"l. x 17"w.

"This is so beautiful - I want to purchase another one but this item is out of stock. I hope the Smithsonian restocks this stunning scarf again soon!"
