Textile fragment with tendrils, a half-medallion, and rosettes

Details

  • Catalogue text

    A wide band entirely filled with tendrils; a half-medallion with a beaded frame contains half a flower-head, the pattern is white on a red ground. A narrow band with crossed tendrils and small rosettes, white on a brown ground and with a border of small dots. The fragment's design is identical to Cat. no. 611 [EA1990.618].

    The fragment has been folded into a rectangle, and two of the edges have remains of stitching. One long side may have a selvedge. The reverse is less saturated with dye than the surface. It is almost certain that the fragment was part of the same fabric as Cat. no. 611 [EA1990.618].
