Details

  • Catalogue text

    A white band with four large red discs, each containing six small rosettes clustered around a central circle; the band has two identical red borders with small, four-petalled flowers, set along the selvedge and at right angles to it, and a third border which is brown with small white flowers. At right angles to the selvedge is another wide band filled with small hexagons, and a row of thin brown ?columns against a white ground.

    A selvedge is parallel to the band of discs. The reverse is slightly less saturated with dye than the surface. The fabric is loosely woven.
