This is a finely woven "Paisley" type Shawl, or "Waistband", as some reference books call this form, in the rare White Wool Background...Afghan or Mughal according to the references I have. Possibly late 19th Century or earlier.

Hand embroidered in red, pink, black, green and turquoise silk threads, in a trailing total overall pattern of botehs, flowers and vines..the side edges are overcast stitched in a pale blue, and outlined with a border of florettes and a band of black stitching.

The size is approx.70"long x 31"wide (178cm x 63cm).

The fringed ends are patterned with a pierced small diamond design, above the bands of fringe that have been hand tied to create a large open diamond design.

There are 2 small woven signatures (see Photos).

The overall condition is very good, with just small "mouse" bites in three areas of the white (see Photo of one).

Another fine textile I have had in my collection for over 20 years... time for it to fly to your collection.... Please see the other Victorian textiles I have listed.
