  • Catalogue text

    Two bands of interlacing tendrils that have small leaves emerging. The tendrils are white, with fine red outlines on a blue ground. The bands are separated by three bands with continuous vines, of which the central one is realistic, while the two outer ones are very stylized. In addition, one of the interlace bands has borders with single rows of white and red dots.

    Selvedge at right angles to the bands. For the red, the reverse shows very slightly less dye saturation than the surface, while there is more blue.
