Textile fragment with rosettes and leaves

Details

  • Catalogue text

    A continuous field of two types of large rosettes surrounded by trumpet-shaped leaves, each with a beaded border. All outlines are brown, the designs primarily white with pink details, and the background is pink.

    The fragment is made up from two pieces connected by an open seam; both white and blue thread is used. One fragment has a selvedge, and its measurements are: warp 40 cm., weft 12 cm. Apparently the mordant for the brown outlines was first stamped and dyed, then a resist was stamped, and the fabric was dyed pink.
