Textile fragment with linked tendrils and flower-heads

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Linked tendrils with small circles attached as leaves and flowerheads, as Cat. no. 399 [EA1990.406]. Red on white ground.

    Selvedge, with a row of blue stitching close to it, as in the previous fragment [EA1990.406]. The two fragments may have been part of the same fabric; see also Cat. no. 401 [EA1990.408]. The reverse shows considerably less dye saturation than the surface.
