Textile fragment with sawtooth edge, vine, and crosses

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Following the selvedge, there are narrow bands of sawtooth edge, a running vine with separate leaves, and small blue crosses set into a white band, with blue dots separating the crosses, as in Cat. no. 16 [EA1990.24]. The same bands are repeated at right angles to the selvedge. The resist generally defines the design, with the exception of the band of crosses. The background is blue.

    Selvedge. Some stitching, probably to hold the fragment together.
