Textile fragment with linked tendrils, stylized trees, and tabs

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Large, white tendrils with red outlines are linked and move around red leaf shapes that contain stylized, white trees. The background is blue. Along the selvedge is a narrow, red band with white rosettes, and at right angles is a blue band with diamonds and dots. Three blue and white tabs are next to this band, against a red background.

    Selvedge with white stitches along it, sewn with flax thread. Additional flax thread is around the tabs, and some cotton thread is used for mending the fragment. The reverse shows less dye saturation for the red and brown, but more for the blue.
