Wonderful and stunning design and colouring. I have not seen one like this. Ames, Frank The Kashmir Shawl
woven square shawl, the centre with a circular blue moonwith quarters of yellow, pistachio, ivory and pink, each with four small boteh, the outer deep borders with semicircles or mehrab type shapes containing elegant crossed pines with a repeating medallion design, one corner embroidered with a signature, epaulette border, 6ft 5 in; 2 m sq
Very good. The centre blue moon is slightly streaky, but this is not from fading but variation in the dye. About 8 very very small holes.
