Textile fragment with medallions and flowers, with rosettes set into linked stars

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Border band of oval medallions, with a flower inside and a surround of tendrils and leaves; in addition there are clusters of four eight-petalled rosettes set into linked star shapes, as in Cat. no. 189 [EA1990.197]. A sawtooth border runs along the selvedge side of the band. The resist sometimes defines the design, but it also is the outline or background for the definition of patterns. The general background is blue.

    Selvedge and some stitching.
