Textile fragment from a dress, possibly with grapes

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Two large bunches of ?grapes, and in addition linked rosettes that follow the dress outline.

    Selvedge; an additional, more loosely woven piece of linen has been sewn on. There is a curved outline, for neck or arm opening, which the design follows. This has closely set puncture marks and remains of silk stitching. There is no evidence of block-printing or resist, and the blue apparently was applied to the surface of the fabric.
