Textile fragment with rosettes, dots, and lobed diamond-shapes

Details

  • Catalogue text

    A continuous pattern of eight-petalled rosettes with a dot at the centre, and additional dots; two bands with stylized tendrils and lobed diamonds are separated by a band with rows of dots. The pattern is white against a red or purple background.

    A seam, done in long stitches with brown thread. The original fabric was cut along the band of dots, which seems to have had a design as in Cat. no. 538 [EA1990.545]. The reverse is more heavily saturated with dye than the surface.
