A square paisley shawl probably made in France. Twill woven in wool and resembling the famed moon shawl minus the center moon, no doubt to make it more pliant and drapable. Narrow floral borders, quarter circles in corners, and a field with small floral bouquets complete the design.

Keep in mind ...
Our vintage and antique pieces have traveled throughout the world and survived decades - maybe even centuries - of use. Do not expect them to be in perfect or *new* condition. Signs of their past makers and owners may be noticeable such as small holes, loose threads, & stains. In our opinion, this adds to their charm!
