This large and dramatic GYPSY wool challis shawl with fringe hails from the 1950's. The flowers are a bright red, turquoise, & gold with a n abundance of green leaves. The fabric is a quality wool. It does not have any evidence of wear. Not only can this be worn on ones shoulders it is also used for a table covering and draped on furniture or over a piano. . They are even cut up and made into a skirt or dress! They were made in the Slavic countries, Russia, Japan, & Switzerland. I will be putting another in my shop with a white ground with coral cabbage flowers. I also have a third shawl with a white ground and yellow flowers which will be put in later. All three are from the same home. The owner is now in her nineties!
The shawl is in excellent vintage condition!
The Shawl measures.....85" long with 6" wool fringe x 60" wide..plus 6" wool fringe.
