Textile fragment with tendrils, leaves, and rosettes

Details

  • Catalogue text

    A narrow, red band with small, white arches, each containing a single white flower, is set next to a larger, blue design field with red and white tendrils and leaves, as well as curving bands of small, overlapping rosettes.

    A selvedge parallel to the narrow band of arches. The reverse shows less dye saturation for the red, but more for the blue. There are remains of red stitching along the selvedge, possibly done prior to dyeing the textile.
