Textile fragment with leaves and dots

Details

  • Catalogue text

    A band with four leaves arranged as a quatrefoil, with white outlines and filled with red against a blue ground, and surrounded by small flowers with four petals and tiny leaves. The quatrefoil alternates with a single red leaf, red with white outline. Next to the band is a a field of red blotches filled with white dots, against a blue ground.

    Selvedge at right angles to the band. The reverse shows more dye saturation than the surface. Two fragments found at Quseir al-Qadim have a band with single leaves similar to the one here (see Vogelsang-Eastwood 1990: Cat. nos. 32 & 36).
