Crochet shawl of 75-year old yarn

The end of last year I was experimenting with rayon (viscose) from the legacy of my grandmother. The yarn is possibly 75 years old. (See historical research yarn and start of shawl).

I crocheted a big shawl which was finished around Christmas last year. I didn't have the opportunity to take photos of it, but last month a made the time for it, with the help of a friend. Here are a few pictures of my shawl. 

The pattern is of Cascade Yarns, but I made the top edge and the fringe differently. Also, because my yarn was so much thinner than the one in the pattern, the pattern turns out much finer.
