Description

Long rectangular ivory lace shawl. The entire shawl has floral and leaf designs and all four edges are scalloped and have tiny loops of threads around the scallops. Where there is no design, the lace has a net-like appearance. The shawl also has a sheer to it in certain lights. The pattern is more scattered in the center and gets more concentrated towards the ends and edges.
