Textile fragment with hexagons and palmettes, and three tabs

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Three tabs with geometric centres, attached to a main fabric with two borders at right angles, of hexagons with a six-petalled rosette inside. The inner field of the textile has split palmettes and light blue, irregular dots. The resist defines the design, the background is blue.

    The tabs are hemmed, and at the top they are folded to create the arch. Two of the tabs are torn in half lengthwise, one with a narrow, rolled hem along the tear.
