Textile fragment with bands of squares, diamond-shapes, and rosettes

Details

  • Catalogue text

    A band of brown squares and diamonds, each containing a white, eight-petalled rosette; the diamond is set against a light blue background. The band has borders of rows of dots on either side; these are brown on blue and white on brown. These are followed by a narrow, brown band with a white continuous vine with separate leaves.

    Selvedge at right angles to the bands. The surface and reverse show an equal dye saturation. There is no evidence of resist applied, and the blue was possibly not applied by immersion. The textile has also been published by Varadarajan (1983: 11, fig. 3).
