Beautiful decorative Antique French Paisley Throw, or Piano Shawl, with fringe on two sides. Made in the earlier part of the 1900's, shawls like this were used in several ways, both in the home and as a piece of clothing. This is a medium to heavier weight throw, of good substance and reversible. One side features glorious muted colors of Wine Red, Spice Gold, Black and Cream. The other side is reversed {which you want to see with these older woven textiles} and lighter.

The pattern is a traditional classic Kashmir array of swirling scrolls, florals, and crosses, absolutely gorgeous and quite detailed. These Paisley textiles were used in Europe to dress a table, or a piano in the early to mid 1900's, or to hang behind a wall hung coatrack.  They were also worn over the shoulders to ward off a chill.

There is one small hole and an area of thinning, as shown, not unusual for an antique textile over 100 years old. The pattern is quite forgiving, but you can of course mend should you wish. Such a lovely throw for a special chair by your fire, to accent a small table for autumn, or to create a large pillow for your French Country antique bed. Measures 36-1/2" x 33" not including the 1-1/2" fringes on two sides.
