Textile fragment with reversed S-shapes, rosettes, and flowers

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Reversed s-shapes, eight-petalled rosettes with central dots, and four-petalled flowers, arranged as a continuous design of squares, similar to Cat. no. 3 [EA1990.11]. In addition there is a narrow band of zigzag, and part of a wider band with irregular vegetative forms. The resist defines the pattern, the background is blue.

    Stitching, probably recent, to hold the fragment together. Overlapping in design defines the block length or width as 11 cm.
