Be prepared for all of your bisque bebes to be lining up, asking to try on this beautiful mohair shawl! The presentation it offers is undeniable, with a rich and delicate cream color, in super-soft curly mohair, that is bound to make your dollies smile! Any doll would look fabulous adorned in this -- as you can see, our very own Santa is just beaming! Beautiful inner silk lining makes sure your doll is kept warm with a soft silk against her skin, as she stands proudly in your collection cabinet. A truly beautiful accessory for the keen-eyed collector, this shawl is for those who prize the presentation value of their dolls. Do not waste a moment more! The Santa pictured is for sale too, as is the lovely matching muff she wears -- give us a call or email, and we will be glad to offer a combination deal for any of the three items!
Measurements: Width: 17". Top to bottom: 7.5-9"
Condition: Generally excellent! The mohair is fabulous, and intact across the piece, and is still super soft and supple, maintaining its lovely original color and lush feel. The silk lining in the inside near the top half has some shredding (see the photos). Overall, though, the piece is fabulous!

**We now ship EVERY SINGLE ONE of our antique costume pieces in archival, museum quality, acid free tissue paper. We store them in an acid free, climate controlled environment, because we want you to get a textile that has been frozen in time. As curators of these antiques, we know how important it is for them to be as fresh for the next generation of students and enthusiasts as they were for us. This is factored into the price of our merchandise. We hope you can enjoy these rare finds for years to come, and we want to make sure that when they reach you, they are ready for careful love and display if you so chose, or to be stored in a destruction-free paper. Happy shopping!** LBS 7/9/16
