Antique Paisley Shawl with Arabesque Designs & Coral Center, 19th C (125" X 58").

Vibrant color combinations featuring amazingly green and white coral field, Mid-nineteenth century European example, likely from Scotland, where most European paisleys were produced in the Scottish town of Paisley. Maroon selvage side edges with fringed ends. Every prominent, fashion conscious Victorian woman had at least one as part of her trousseau. In very good condition for its age and previous use as an outer shawl used by Victorian woman to protect her elaborate clothing on important outings where a coat would be too cumbersome or nearly impossible over the larger bustled skirts of the day.
