Textile fragment with flowers, quatrefoils, and rosettes

On display

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Four-petalled flowers and single dots create a grid of squares, which are filled with either a rosette or a quatrefoil, similar to Cat. no. 97 [EA1990.105]. The rosette, however, has wedge-shaped petals and no dot in the centre. The resist defines the pattern, the background is blue.

    Selvedge, and remains of blue stitching on all four sides. Overlapping of the pattern at the block edge. A very small fragment remains at the side opposite the selvedge, probably part of a fabric that was once sewn on at this point.
