Details

  • Catalogue text

    A band with small compartments of stars, white on a red ground, and one with a red rosette and crosses on blue. The design is similar to parts of Cat. nos. 1004 and 1006 [EA1990.1011 and EA1990.1013]. In addition there is the beginning of a large design that cannot be read.

    Hem sewn with light blue silk thread. The reverse shows slightly less dye saturation for the red. The fabric is woven from very fine thread.
