Antique French Paisley Shawl Throw Large
This magnificent antique French paisley shawl is woven on a jacquard loom from wool and silk in warm orange and red tones. It dates from the late 19th century and is possibly earlier. The decorative border seen in the second photo runs across the width of the shawl at both ends, and the long edges have the traditional green narrow border.
The shawl measures 1.68m wide x 3.32m long (66inches wide x 131 inches long)
This shawl is not in perfect condition, hence the price. There is one tear and a few visible holes, however the black centre is in excellent condition. If you hold the shawl up to the light you will see a lot of holes that don't show from the right side. See the last three photos for examples of the damaged areas.
However, this is still a hugely decorative piece and could be used as a wall hanging or if lined as a curtain. It could be used folded to decorate the back of a sofa.
Care instructions: dry clean only.
