Textile fragment with tendrils and rosettes

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Narrow brown bands with white tendrils and half-rosettes, partly at right angles to each other, and the beginning of a white band with a single red radiating diamond. In addition, there appears the beginning of a field with small, densely set red tendrils and flowers on white ground. All patterns are as in Cat. no. 850 [EA1990.856].

    The reverse shows less dye saturation than the surface. There is a white seam or intake. The fragment was probably once part of the same fabric as Cat. no. 850 [EA1990.856].
