Textile fragment with medallions and plants

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Two design fields separated by three narrow bands. One of the fields has large, quadripartite red medallions filled with blue and white plants; the space between is filled with red and white plants against a blue ground. The other field has ornate, symmetrical plants, blue and white on a red ground. Black is used to outline some of the forms. The bands have a row of hexagons, a line of small stars, and an elaborate floral design against a black ground.

    Selvedge. The reverse shows less dye saturation for red and black, but more for blue.
