Interesting historic facts:
A piano "shawl" was also called a piano blanket or piano throw, and was very popular in the Victorian Era and was exactly that: a large piece of fabric, usually (but not always) with deep knotted fringes. Thrown over the piano for decorative purposes and to protect the wood finish from water stains, finger marks, scratches, dust, etc. They were often very elaborate and made of heavy fabrics such as silk velvets, mohair velvets, satin brocades with chenille embroidery, heavy silks, golden threads, etc.They were not meant to be worn as a garment.
In the late 1910's and 1920's, the very large, lighter weight silk fringed shawls with fancy embroidery were worn as garments, and were often called piano shawls, probably due to their large size and fringes. They were influenced both by Spanish fashions and Oriental fashions and motifs. A garment correctly referred to as a Piano Shawl would be a large lightweight silk, with deep silk knotted fringes and usually have fancy silk floss embroidery. Of course, these same shawls would often be tossed over a piano, sofa or hung on a wall.
