Textile fragment with stepped diamond-shape and vegetal pattern

Details

  • Catalogue text

    A band of red, white, and blue wheels, and a second band with a diamond with stepped sides and four symmetrically arranged leaves, in white outlines and filled with blue against a red ground. The latter band is similar to Cat. no. 160 [EA1990.168], which is dyed with indigo. In addition there is the beginning of a vegetal pattern, with white tendrils and bunches of fruit on a red ground.

    The reverse shows more dye saturation than the surface. The fabric is woven from very fine thread.
