shawl - 26" wide x 82" long


Excellent - appears to have been hardly worn and stored very well.  Her under skirt peeks out a bit but I can't find any sign of improper handling that might cause that as she looks to have been exceptionally stored and cared for; easy fix. And a tiny spot at the edge of one the many pleats through her bodice. Price adjusted accordingly.
