Textile fragment with spirals, dots, and rosettes

Details

  • Catalogue text

    A wide band with small spirals, dots, and short lines; on either side of it is a narrower band with a row of four different versions of rosettes. Additional designs appear beyond these bands, but only one is recognizable: it shows a snowflake pattern, as in Cat. no. 35 [EA1990.43]. The designs are white on a dyed ground; the rosette bands are on a red background, the other two are on a brown background. See also Cat. no. 324 [EA1990.332].

    The design is printed diagonally to the weave structure. It is very precisely printed, both on the surface and on the reverse.
