Nineteenth century handwoven and hand-finished shoulder kelsch. Machine hem at either end. Backed with ivory hemp/linen homespun. Cross-stitched initials "M & S." Rare woven striped tape ties. Like new condition. Most likely the backup kelsch in the trousseau woven and marked for future use. It has never been washed. It was found folded and tied with hemp thread. To be soaked overnight and laundered separately. The natural dye will run.
