Textile fragment with tendrils, leaves, and flowers

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Large red tendrils with serrated leaves or flowers on a white ground, as in Cat. nos. 827 [EA1990.829], 409 [EA1990.416], and 410 [EA1990.417]. There are also small remains of a band with delicate purple lines, as in the previous textile [EA1990.829].

    There are remains of stitching along a diagonal seam, as in Cat. no. 827 [EA1990.829]. The two fragments were probably once part of the same fabric, together with Cat. nos. 409 [EA1990.416] and 410 [EA1990.417]. The reverse shows less dye saturation than the surface.
