Textile fragment with stylized trees and three-layered rosettes

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Bands at right angles to each other; one with stylized trees, as in Cat. no. 353 [EA1990.360], the other with three-layered rosettes interspersed with small, six-petalled rosettes, and additional narrow bands with rows of dots, stars, and stylized leaves. In general, the design is red against a light ground, although most of the narrow bands reverse the order.

    Selvedge, some stitching. Red is added as a filler in some parts, probably applied by hand. The reverse is very slightly less precise in outline than the surface, possibly indicating the use of resist and mordant immersion.
