  • Catalogue text

    A large elaborate semi-rosette with two layers of flower-filled petals, red and blue with brown outlines. Next to it is a blue band with paired leaves alternating with flower heads, as in Cat. nos. 965 and 966 [EA1990.971 and EA1990.972]. This is followed by a red band with a curving vine stem and separate bunches of leaves. The design is white with brown outlines, and the leaves have some blue details.

    A straight line of stitching goes through part of the fragment.
