Description Ecru-coloured, very loosely made square lace? woolen? shawl. It has been described as being made of mohair. The main section is composed of a series of overlapping loops which again interlock to form larger loops. The sides of the square are bordered by pointed scallops made by loops that are linked more closely together. The remaining two sides have a four-tiered border of larger loops in a chain (twice), a row of rosettes, and a row of pointed scallops.
Provenance This shawl was previously owned by Mrs. William Gibson (nee Christina McIntyre) of Priceville, Ontario. Her father was a Priceville veterinarian, and she married Mr. Gibson in 191-. We do not know if she owned it originally - it had belonged to her mother?
