Victorian Wool Paisley Shawl Cloak Cape  Front view.

This extraordinary Victorian era antique wool paisley shawl cloak cape dates from 1900. It is made of a jacquard hand loomed woven wool done in strong vivid vibrant colors of red, orange, brown, blue, green, gold, black and white in a decorative paisley pattern design. This stunning shawl has exquisite workmanship and detail. It has been beautifully made into a long floor length cloak style cape, with a large fluffy dyed black fox fur collar, smocking gathers around the shoulders, hook and eye closure on the neck and is fully lined with an inside pocket. These paisley shawls were made in Paisley, Scotland and were popular during the mid to late 1800s with at least one being included in every better class trousseau. They were known as 'kirking' (church) shawls and were worn to church on the first Sunday after the wedding and then used again at christenings. The cape measures 38 inches long, with a 28 inch neck and is 100 inches in circumference along the bottom. It is in excellent clean wearable condition, with some dryness and several small rips in the fox fur collar only. This is truly a wonderful one of a kind wearable piece of paisley textile art.
