This is a wonderful WWII era piano shawl / tasseled scarf or tablecloth made in the “Taj Mahal” style.  This is a true example as it features woven representations of the Taj Mahal in each corner.  The colours are quite striking in bluish purple, gold yellow and silver grey against a magenta red background - fabulous!  The piece has a 10” long knotted tassel.  It measures 34” by 33”, exclusive of its 10” tassel - including the tassel, overall dimensions would be 43” by 44”.  It is in excellent condition - this looks to have been folded and put away without being used - the colors are bright and there are no stains or wear or tear.  This type of shawl is usually described as being of silk brocade - I’m not sure if it is silk, but it is definitely silky and has a wonderful lustrous appearance.  Lovely Taj Mahal in a rarely seen colour combination!
