About 1770, the Duke of Gloucester, William Henry, commissioned a dinner service which reflected his passionate interest in the natural world. The resulting pattern is an impressive manifestation of rococo style, complete with 19 exuberant colors, gilt feathering and a brilliant turquoise rim.
A platter from the original service, now in the collections of Colonial Williamsburg, served as the inspiration for the exquisite reproduction. It took over two years to complete the process, matching the vibrant colors and hand-painted feel of the antique.

This scarf is so beautiful that I ordered a second one for my mom. I drape mine over a white winged back chair in my den (so that I can see it everyday) and plan to use as a table runner for entertaining. The price is amazing for Duke of Gloucester. I would have been willing to pay more actually.
It is a lovely silk scarf with fruit on it. I am happy with it.
