Textile fragment with tendrils, leaves, and flowers

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Tendrils with large, serrated leaves or flowers and arranged as an interlace, red on a white ground, as in Cat. nos. 409 [EA1990.416] and 410 [EA1990.417]. In addition there is a narrow band of triangles, filled with small vegetal forms, in delicate purple lines against awhite ground.

    Remains of stitching along a diagonal seam, possibly matching the seam in Cat. no. 828 [EA1990.830]. The reverse is less saturated with dye than the surface.
