Shawl

2006.44.1368 (RS12432)

Description

Long black lace shawl. The shawl is rectangular in shape but it does have a wide shallow V-shape cut out of the top with the rough edges hemmed. All the remaining edges are scalloped, created by alternating roses and other floral designs. Inside of those designs are paisley designs with more flowers and leaves. Running down the center are six identical groupings of flowers and leaves. At both ends, there is a larger floral grouping framed by swirls and paisleys.
