Description - Victorian Paisley Shawls by Chet Gadsby

This beautifully illustrated book showcases over 300 elegantly designed paisley shawls woven in the Victorian era from 1830 through the early twentieth century. Shown in rich full color are the distinctive scrolled leaf designs on shawls of various sizes and fabric types from India, Scotland, France, Ireland, England, Italy, and Holland. The book is divided into two main sections: the first devoted to very long shawls and the second devoted to square and various size shawls. All feature intricate patterns and fine workmanship; many are rare, museum quality shawls. Includes an overview of shawl types and tips for selecting, cleaning, and storing shawls. This book is an invaluable tool for identifying the origins, dates, and values of paisley shawls. A must for vintage textile buyers, sellers, and collectors.
