Textile fragment with bands of stylized trees or leaves, rosettes, and stepped squares

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Two bands, the wider one with a row of stylized tree or leaf shapes, the narrow one with alternating rosettes and stepped squares with diamonds inside. The pattern is red and brown against a white ground.

    Two stitches sewn with coarse, blue thread. The reverse is heavily saturated with red dye, suggesting a mordant immersion, but it is possible that the brown design was done by mordant stamping.
