Textile fragment with interlace and interlocking rosettes

Details

  • Catalogue text

    A band of knotted interlacing, and a continuous design of interlocking rosettes. The design is red and brown on a white ground, although it can also be read as white against a red and brown background.

    A line of stitches, all cut. The design is slightly blurred on the rverse, which suggests that a resist was used. Pattern and technical details are very similar to Cat. no. 664 [EA1990.671].
