ANTIQUE PAISLEY SHAWL 1870's ENGLISH KIRKING SHAWL LONG - 131" x 60". Presenting an English paisley shawl dating to the mid-19thc with the extravagant design elements. This elegant 1870's paisley shawl breathes with vibrance of old colors. The fringes are on two end edges and are sewn on and few are missing. MEASUREMENT: The paisley shawl measures approx. CONDITION: Shawl is in fair/good condition, unwashed, with some fading, many stains, and no thin areas and with many small holes.

I have pictured most of the damage. There is some fringe loss. Some age related discoloration and stains from decades of non use and storage. Could use a long soak to refresh.

Newly-married woman and young mothers almost always wore such a shawl on attending their first church service after their respective happy event of marriage. For this reason these shawls come to be known as "Kirking shawls". This piece is strong and sturdy and worthy of collecting.

These paisley shawls make nice decorative touches in the home as well, try them for holiday buffet table, a pleasant and no fuss alternative to white linen or lace. ANTIQUE CLOTHING & ACCESSORIES : ANTIQUE PAISLEY SHAWLS.
