  • Catalogue text

    A wide, red band with a single, large flower, white with brown, blue, and red details. Along either side are bands with white cross-hatching on blue ground, as well as red bands with white, crossed tendrils.

    Remains of stitching are irregularly spread over the fragment. The reverse shows less dye saturation for the red than the surface, but there is more blue.
