Flowered Muslin Reproduction Shawl

Flowered Muslin Reproduction Shawl, reproduced from the Collection of the Albany Institute of Art & History by Burnley & Trowbridge

This fine Flowered Muslin Reproduction Shawl is reproduced from an original which has no provenance.  Its 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 and production soon spread to other countries, such as England & France

The light muslin suited warmer weather, and the diaphanous silhouette of the Regency period. The rich patterns, sometimes adorned with embroidery of silk and metal, could be worn from morning to evening. With colors of reds, greens, blues, and browns, it complements any ensemble.
