Textile fragment with flower-heads, stars, and squares

Details

  • Catalogue text

    The main design field has large single flower-heads seen in profile, clusters of seven stars, and squares with a lobed circle inside; in addition there is a narrow band with a continuous vine, and a wide band with large rosettes, leaves, and Maltese crosses set into squares. In general the pattern is white against a red ground.

    The fragment is sewn together from two pieces; on both the seam follows the selvedge. The reverse is very slightly blurred.
