Textile fragment with serrated crosses

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Four-pointed snowflake pattern, with small crosses in between. The space between the motif alternates between light and dark blue. The resist defines the pattern, although the blue areas could also be seen as stylized motifs against a light ground.

    Selvedge, two open seams parallel to it. Further evidence of stitching.
