Tab with cartouche and stylized plant

Details

  • Catalogue text

    A single tab defined by brown and white outlines, and containing a cartouche and stylized plant, as in the border of tabs in Cat. no. 1078 [EA1990.1085]. At the base of the tab is a narrow band of small, brown dots and the beginning of a design of linked diamonds, also similar to Cat. no. 1078 [EA1990.1085].

    A selvedge along one side of the tab. A rolled hem is sewn around the outlines of the tab, with the exception of the selvedge. The reverse shows less dye saturation for red and brown, but far more for blue.
