Textile fragment with leaves and dotted vine

Details

  • Catalogue text

    A red band with single, blue and white leaves, as in Cat. no. 1026 [EA1990.1033], and with rows of white dots on either side. Next to it is a continuous, curving red vine, its stem filled with two rows of white dots. Red rosettes are attached to it; the background is dark blue. In addition there is the beginning of a second red band at right angles to the first, as well as a blue field with white bunches of fruit and leaves, linked by tendrils.

    Selvedge, with the remains of stitching along two sides of the fragment. For both red and blue, the reverse shows more dye saturation than the surface. The band of single leaves is similar to two fragments found at Quseir al-Qadim, although there the leaves are red with white outlines on a red ground (see Vogelsang-Eastwood 1990: Cat. nos. 32 & 36).
