Silk Gauze Trellis Shawl
c 1850

Another beautiful evening shawl with iridescent jewel colours. This shawl's design is interesting for its naturalistic roses and stylised Indian inspired flowers.


hand block printed on a wool and silk trellis ground with a continuous border design of triple leaves in maroon and aquamarine interspersed with naturalistic roses and Indian inspired stylised flowers, inred, electric blue, rich ochre, emerald green,



There is a 1 in slit to the centre trellis. A poorly done old darn 3 1/2 in; 9 cm, which could easily be removed and improved. A couple of smallish holes to one edge. Ask for photos.
