This is a beautiful Regency period silk long shawl in changeable silk and contrasting ends. It is English or French and dates to about 1820.

The colours are glorious. Peacock colours in green/blue/dark turquoise which change with the light and movement. Wonderfully decorative the ends have little sprigs  woven in yellow and coral and there are yellow stripes down each side, and to the end panels.

This lovely shawl is very unusual, in excellent condition and strong, without damage. It can be used with care. It should be mentioned how hard it is to catch these lovely colours with the camera. I hope this effect can be seen. It is the best we could do!
