Description An ornamental shelf drape, red plush, needlepoint and bead work. The part that would attach to the shelf is red velvet. The bottom is edged with red and gold piping. The bottom is triple lobed with the centre lobe being largest. Three pompoms are attached one at the centre of the centre lobe and the others between the lobes. The pattern is life like roses in shades of grey. The roses are made with beads. The entire object is stiff and has two distinct folds on either side of the contre lobe. Possibly it may have been stored in this position for an extended period or it adorned a square shelf. On one end it has been embroidered with a second colour of red which has either faded differently then the remainder or has always been another colour.
Provenance Unknown. Last owned by Florence Morris (née White) of Owen Sound, Grey County.
