Scottish Paisley Shawl Large Black Center circa 1860s - 1870s
Although Paisley shawls were first produced in Kashmir, most of the ones we find today were woven in Paisley, Scotland. Finding their first life as shawls that Victorian women wrapped around themselves, they have now evolved into a decorative textile for your home. They can be used in a myriad of ways, throw on a sofa, across a bed such as I have shown in my photos or as a cloth on a favorite table, side or dining. It's no wonder that top clothing designers like Ralph Lauren have used these paisley prints and colors in his clothing and home goods line. They are classic and certainly have stood the test of time.
DIMENSIONS: 122" x 72" total shawl 78" long max x 47" wide Black center
CONDITION: There is a small OLD hole that was "darned" in perfect colors. I did not see this until I photographed that side of the paisley. No problems of any sort noted. It is clean and ready to use
