This is a Print. It was published by Samuel and Joseph Fuller and made for Le Mercure de Salons. We acquired it in 1980. Its medium is engraving, hand-colored with brush and watercolor on off-white paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.



In the advertisement for Paris Fashions from 1830, Le Mercure de Salons describes their shawls as "Cachemir des Indes," or Indian cashmere. Shawls in both of these plates are denoted by their paisley borders.

This object was donated by Cooper Union Library.
