Textile fragment with circles and petals

Details

  • Catalogue text

    The main design field has fragments of three large circles, each with twelve-petalled rosettes in the centre and petals as a frame; in addition there is a small, six-spoked spiral. Next to this are two bands with beaded edges, one with linked, beaded circles and a rosette at the centre of each, the other with linked diamond shapes. The design of the main field is white against a red ground, while the bands are red against white.

    Stitching. The reverse shows more dye saturation than the surface.
