Amli Foldover Shawl
c 1850

Fantastic embroidery. The pashmina centre is thicker than is usual but beautifully soft


the natural coloured pashmina twill woven ground with finely embroidered deep borders in red, magenta, yellow, green, black wool with curling botehs and foliage under mihrab arches, the epaulette borders with foliage, 77 x in or1.96 x


A few moth holes to the border embroidery, which of course do not show unless you hold the piece to the light. 2 slightly larger 1/2 in or 1 cm. The central field has a light stain 1 x 1 inch or2.5 cm. ALso a few holes. If you cannot see in photo ask for photos. Nothing too serious.
