Antique indigo blue and white hand woven scarf or kneckerchief, to be worn around the neck, in very fine cotton. The scarf is crisp to the touch and has never been washed. It is in perfect condition. On the outside back of the scarf are two initials M.T. With research possibly the sister can be identified. On the inside under the initials there is a label sewn on that reads, P-3-134 Shaker Kerchief Traphagen School. It is my understanding that this school in NY City had a major auction selling their collection of textiles. As part of the collection being sold there were very nice Shaker textiles. Over the years I have bought several Shaker dresses with this same label. It is 37" on two sides and 51" across the long end. This is a rare and very nice example of a Shaker hand woven Sister's scarf. Circa 1850-60
