Manchester or French antique printed kerchief (99 x 97cm)


– Unavailable


99 x 97 cm /  3ft 3" x 3ft 2"

This exquisite fine printed cotton was made for the export trade to Asia in the taste of a Kashmir shawl with a boteh design. The term ' Manchester ' is generic and applied to fine cotton export goods from 19th cent and not necessarily an attribution. Its purpose may have been intended as a bandana but it appears largely unused.

One minor stain otherwise in good fresh condition. Minute hemming has been proficiently executed in hand-sewing verso to a high standard.

• Circa 1850
