Textile fragment with stylized trees, and fruits or flowers

Details

  • Catalogue text

    A continuous design of stylized trees, similar to Cat. no. 1122 [EA1990.1129]. The trees have faint, brown outlines. They have three fruits or flowers inside, and small white and blue dots surround them. They are blue, red, and white on a red ground, and the space between them is filled with white tendrils and bunches of fruit.

    The reverse shows more dye saturation for red and blue, but the brown outlines that were first applied to the fabric appear only partly on the reverse. There are remains of blue stitching.
