Details

  • Catalogue text

    Again the cartouche design of EA1984.445.a is repeated, but is very fragmentary. There also are the remains of the star-shape of EA1984.445.a. The designs are outlined in yellow satin stitch and blue double running. The background of the cartouche is made up of drawn-thread work with overcast and loop stitch, as well as pulled work with wrapping stitch in diagonal rows. There is a fine border with S-shapes and lozenges.

    There is a fine hem along one side of the fragment.

    The fragment has been radiocarbon dated to 1395 +/- 40.
