Textile fragment with dotted tendrils and small rosettes in circles

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Thick, beaded tendrils and small rosettes set into roundels, as the last pattern described for Cat. no. 560 [EA1990.567]. The petals of large flower-heads are visible at the edge of the fragment. The pattern is red and brown against a white background.

    Originally part of Cat. no. 560 [EA1990.567]; the two fragments can be matched up. This also defines the size of the block used as 12.5 cm. x 12.5 cm. There is a selvedge, and some stitching along it. The reverse is heavily saturated with dye.
