Antique French Paisley Shawl Throw
This magnificent antique French paisley shawl is woven from wool and silk in soft orange and terracotta tones. The pattern is typical of shawls from Nimes in the south of France where it would have been woven on a jacquard loom.
The shawl measures 1.64m wide x 3.28m long (66inches wide x 128 inches long)
This shawl is in excellent condition for its age, there are some pin prick holes in the black centre and a small hole on one of the long edges. If you hold the shawl up to the light you will see a few tiny holes that don't show from the right side.
This exceptional piece could be used folded to decorate the back of a sofa, draped over a chair, used as a wall hanging or curtain. The last two photos show the reverse side of the shawl.
Care instructions: dry clean only.
