Art Deco fashion collar, 1930s, Australian mission work. (WWH)

I bought this in the small South Australian village of Meningie which is a famous old Aboriginal mission town on the coast near the Coorong estuary. I would say that it was mission handiwork salvaged form the collar of a 1930s dress. The colors seem to me to be very typically Aboriginal rather than Europea in inspiration. Lovely and delicate work on black chiffon net. Size 27 x 23 cm / 10 x 9 inches.
