  • Catalogue text

    A band with two oval medallions with tendril-ends, separated by a cluster of four linked rosettes, all with white outlines against a red ground. The band has borders with a zigzag line in each, brown on a white ground. The pattern is similar to one of the bands in Cat. no. 651 [EA1990.657].

    Remains of some stitching in blue and white suggest that there once were tabs attached to the fabric. The reverse is slightly blurred, suggesting the use of a reserve. The dye analysis has shown that the colorant used was alizarin with purpurin, the source of which was Rubia tinctorum L.
