Textile fragment with hearts, trefoils, and quatrefoils

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Two wide bands, one with thick, stylized tendrils arranged as regular heart and trefoil shapes, the other with ornate quatrefoils surrounded by tendrils. All design is white with red outlines on a light blue ground. The two bands are separated by two narrow bands, one with a row of small medallions, also white and red on a blue ground, the other with a continuous vine that is white on a red ground.

    Surface and reverse show an identical degree of dye saturation and precision of outline, so that it is not possible to comment on the process of dye application.
