Description

Rectangular black lace shawl with two printed and embroidered paisley panels in the center. The black lace has a floral and leaf design. The paisley panels have a multi-colored printed background with portions of the printed sections embellished with multicolored embroidery. Because of the embroidery the shawl has a definite front and back side. Three sides of the shawl have a tiny sewn hem. The last edge is the selvage edge.
