This silk shawl is in a rich shade of coral. It has floral decoration in cream, green and black. It is French and dates to about 1810.
The main woven floral decoration is situation in one corner, with small bunches leading from this down two of the sides. The other two sides just have the decorative border. This indicates it was designed to wear folder corner to corner. There is a fringe on two sides.
The shawl measures 62" x 66" and the condition is very good. It is strong with just the very minimal fading to the centre. This hardly shows due to the shimmer of the silk.
