Textile fragment with leaves, squares, and rosettes

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Two fragments, one with large tendrils and leaves, as in Cat. no. 807 [EA1990.809], the other made up from narrow rows of diamond shapes and dots, and a band of squares with different rosettes inside. The larger patterns have white outlines against a red ground, with some details in brown.

    A carefully sewn double seam holds both fragments together; it is curious that the reverse of one fragment is sewn to the surface of the other. The reverse is slightly more saturated with dye than the surface.
