  • Catalogue text

    A band with three squares, each with a different design inside, and surrounded by stars and crescents, white on reddish brown; this is followed by a wide band with three single rosettes, white outlines against a red background. A single row of dots and a cable pattern are on either side of a narrow band of stars and dots. A wide design follows with large rosettes set into roundels, and with stars and single ?tendrils, all white on a red ground.

    The reverse shows more dye saturation than the surface.
