Textile fragment with flowers and dotted tendrils

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Thick, white tendrils are filled with brown dots and have flowers attached. They are arranged in an interlace of regular shapes, possibly forming medallions. All design has brown outlines against a background of red.

    There is a border of five small triangles sewn on; two red and one blue are cotton, two with stripes are possibly silk. The fabric is turned back to form the triangle and is sewn across at the seam with the main fabric.
