  • Catalogue text

    A band with red and purple flowers naturalistically drawn, with blue stems and leaves on a white ground. A narrow, purple border has linked blue leaves and red rosettes.

    The reverse shows less dye saturation than the surface. The fabric is extremely closely woven, using very fine thread. It is uncertain whether the pattern is drawn by hand or partly stamped.
