Textile fragment with bands of medallions, quatrefoils, and stylized plants

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Bands of various designs: two with medallions filled with floral designs, two with diagonal rows of small quatrefoils, one with parallel rows of very small, linked ovals, and finally the widest band which has two types of stylized plants, possibly trees, as in Cat. no. 905 [EA1990.911]. In general the patterns are white on a red ground, but in the bands of stylized trees and the medallions, some parts are filled with blue.

    Selvedge, with all bands arranged to move at right angles to it. The reverse shows slightly more dye saturation than the surface.
