This is a lovely example of a 19th century Scottish Paisley shawl made to be worn over the crinoline dresses of the era. The colours are bright andoverall its condition is good. There are two small holes, one near the edge and one centrally towards one end - you need to hold the shawl up to the light to find them.

CONDITION:Unless clearly stated otherwise my listings are for pre-used, vintage and antique items and therefore are not going to be in the same condition you'd expect from a new product. I always endeavour to describe items accurately identifying any major faults. Minor age related marks, crazing etc. may not be mentioned unless they cause a problem.
Due to Royal Mail's draconian price increases and 's new conditions shipping costs have escalated dramatically. I have absorbed some of these costs myself. I also use recycled packing wherever possible to further limit cost. Please, if you feel postal charges are excessive please contact me before offerding, I always seek out the least expensive options.
I aim to dispatch items within one working day (24 hours) of funds clearing.

I wrap fragile items in bubble wrap then pack them in a box with polystyrene "peanuts" making sure there is adequate room between the walls of the box and the item. Less vulnerable items are packaged appropriately with safety and economy in mind.
