Details

  • Catalogue text

    A continuous design field with small, individual flowers supported by a thin stem and with two long leaves emerging from the base. The representation is in side-view. On two sides of the field are border bands; one with small, brown lozenges against a white ground, and the other with a row of three different flowers repeated in alternation, white against a brown ground. The flowers of the main field are white against a red background.

    The selvedge is along the narrow band with lozenges. The fabric is very loosely woven and thin. It is not possible to detect the method of mordant application.
