Textile fragment with leaves

Details

  • Catalogue text

    A red band with single white and blue leaves, as in Cat. no. 1026 [EA1990.1033].

    A mending seam sewn with brown thread. For both red and blue, the reverse shows more dye saturation than the surface. The single leaves are similar to the design on two fragments found at Quseir al-Qadim, although there they are red with white outlines on a red ground (see Vogelsang-Eastwood 1990: Cat. nos. 32 & 36).
