Textile fragment with medallions, interlace, and tabs

Details

  • Catalogue text

    A continuous field of medallions with blue interlace borders, each with a red flower at the centre against a white ground. A narrow, blue border with diamonds is followed by two tabs filled with cartouche and stylized plants, as in Cat. no. 1066 [EA1990.1073].

    The tabs have a hem sewn with blue flax thread, and there are additional mending seams. The reverse shows less dye saturation for red and brown, but more for blue.
