A Kashmir shawl, or otherwise referred to as a Paisley shawl (class of woven textile as opposed to a type of garment) likely dating from the early 19c. The central field of the work incorporates metallic threads outlining colorful, extravagant, symmetrical floral ornaments. The border is multi-layered, and includes the droplet shaped "buta". For more on the likely origin of this piece, see The Kashmir Shawl, an article taken from Mr. John Irwin's book on shawls, published by H.M. Stationery Office, London.

The textile is mounted under glass in a simple wood frame with a thick wooden back. A stain appears on one side, which can be seen in the photographs. We have not investigated whether the stain can be cleaned.
