5′ x 10′   Mid 19th Century hand -woven Kashmiri Shawl from NW India in paisley pattern in red, ivory, black, and green.  The shawls woven in Kashmir, India sometimes are also referred to as “Paisley” or “Piano” Shawls.  The Kashmiri shawls became an extremely fashionable item of clothing when Queen Victoria started wearing them.  Most of the antique shawls known today are the “Paisley” shawls from the 1800s that used the concept and design of this original piece and were machine woven in the town of Paisley Scotland. They are very beautiful, valuable, and collectible but not as rare as this piece.
