Textile fragment with triangles and diamond-shapes

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Two bands are embroidered in blue, with small diamonds alternately linked and single, and a border of triangles; one band is embroidered in brown, also with linked diamonds.

    The blue bands are 1.5 cm wide, the brown one 2 cm. The brown silk is very deteriorated and the design therefore only faint. One of the blue bands stops close to the edge of the textile, and the embroidery changes to the design and colour of the brown band. Both long sides of the textile have been hemmed.
