This is the most exquisite and luxurious crinoline shawl dating to the 1860's. The shawl is made from silk satin and is so soft to the touch. It is printed with a beautiful organic floral pattern and is in very good condition aside from a couple of tiny splits to the fabric which in all honesty do not detract. The hand knotted silk fringing is around all four sides of the shawl and in lovely condition. The shawl measures 68 inches square and the fringe is a further 7 inches. It really is the most beautiful piece and I will be sorry to see it go. It would look wonderful worn with care or perhaps used as a wall hanging or opulent table drape.
