Textile fragment with bands of rosettes and dotted rhombic shapes

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Two parallel bands, one with rhombic shapes made up from dots, the other with a row of rosettes, of four different varieties that are repeated. Lines of dots separate the bands. The pattern is white against a red or brown ground.

    The centres of the rosettes have mostly disintegrated. The reverse shows more dye saturation than the surface. Three corroded copper alloy pins are in the textile. There is a single knot of brown thread which has been dyed with the fabric.
