Textile fragment with cartouches, squares, and medallions

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Linked cartouches, squares, and medallions against a red background, as in Cat. no. 763 [EA1990.770]. The pattern is brown with white outlines, and filled with white tendrils.

    Remains of a seam along one edge of the fragment. This is diagonal to the weave. The reverse shows less dye saturation than the surface. The fragment probably was part of the same fabric as Cat. no. 763 [EA1990.770].
