Textile fragment with tendrils, leaves, flower-heads, and floral designs

Details

  • Catalogue text

    A wide design field with tendrils, leaves with serrated edges, and flower-heads, red on a white ground. This is followed by a band with dots and diamond shapes and a wider band with large, standing floral designs, both design bands white with brown outlines on a red ground. Next to the selvedge is a row of crenellations which can be read as either white or red.

    A selvedge is parallel to the bands. The reverse shows less dye saturation than the surface.
