  • Catalogue text

    Part of a large rosette made up from concentric circles, bands, and petals. The design is white, red, and blue with a fine, brown outline. The outer band seems to contain a continuous vine.

    The fragment is very faded. The reverse shows less dye saturation for red and brown, but more for the blue.
