French Stylized Paisley Scarf

$ 75.00

The bold design on this scarf recalls an ecstatic gouache textile drawing (mid-19th century) in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Designed by H. Minder, fils (French, 19th century), the inscription indicates that the drawing is for a border design on a printed textile; as such, the design would be printed via plate on cotton or silk and perhaps used to construct a colorful day dress.
