A stunning long scarf created in collaboration with specialist designers PJ Studio Accessories of London, with a floral pattern taken from a series of studies by Princess Louise d'Orléans (1812-50). The French princess, and later wife to King Leopold I of Belgium, was an accomplished watercolourist and produced many beautifully detailed botanical paintings. The Fitzwilliam Museum was gifted several of her works as part of the Broughton bequest in 1973.

A blend of wool and silk gives this scarf an alluringly soft and smooth finish and makes it a truly luxurious accessory to wear.
