HAN49 - Flowered Muslin Reproduction Shawl


Price: $65.00
Item Number: HAN49

Reproduced from the Collection of the Albany Institute of Art & History 
By Burnley & Trowbridge

This fine muslin shawl is reproduced from an original which has no provenance.  It's origins most likely come from a shawl or waist sash worn by men & women in India as early as the 6th century.  Imported to the Western world in the last quarter of the 18th century they came into vogue in the 1790's as a shawl for the fashionable lady.  Much like printed textiles from India, their popularity soon lead to other countries such as England & France producing them.  The light muslin suited warmer weather and the diaphonous silhouette of the Regency period. The rich patterns sometimes adorned with embroidery of silk and metal could be worn from morning to evening.  Our shawl is made of hand loomed cotton muslin and is hand finished.  With colors of reds, greens, blues and browns it will compliment any ensemble.  Approximately 24 inches x 120 inches. About Our Handkerchiefs
