Textile fragment with curving shapes and tendrils

Details

  • Catalogue text

    A field of large, curving shapes is set against a background of dense, small tendrils. The large curves are red with white outlines and narrow pearl borders, while the tendrils are white against a red background that has mostly been dyed blue as well. There also is a band with a row of diamonds and borders of brown dots. The diamonds are brown and have been dyed over with blue.

    For the red, the reverse shows less dye saturation than the surface, while there is considerably more blue.
