Textile fragment with vines, leaves, and flowers, probably from a garment

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Four bands of continuous vines with tendrils, leaves, and ornate flowers, identical in design but alternating between two colours, one red on white, the other brown on white.

    A selvedge with remains of stitching along it, and further stitching along two sides, certainly remains of a seam. The shape of the fragment suggests that it was tailored to be part of a garment. The size of the block used was 12.5 cm. x 5 cm. The reverse shows less dye saturation than the surface.
