A beautiful long shawl with ivory silk and wool field, and woven end panels. It is Scottish and dates to about 1830
The beautiful woven ends are in the colours, red, orange, green, blue and brown. With five colours this is a high quality shawl.
The design is of flower-filled cones with stylised borders of carnations and there is a silk fringe at each end.
The shawl is large and flamboyant and would have been expensive at the time it was made.
The condition is excellent. The colours are slightly more muted than shown in some of the close-ups, but nicely and softly aged.
