Textile fragment with squares and diamond-shapes

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Two squares, one with four diamond shapes inside, the other with diagonal rows of linked, small diamonds. The squares are white against a red background; brown lines define the pattern and to some degree fill the inside.

    Selvedge. The reverse is less saturated with dye than the surface. An identical fragment was found at Quseir al-Qadim (see Vogelsang-Eastwood 1990: Cat. no. 43). However, the Quseir fragment seems to be resist- rather than mordant-printed.
