Textile fragment with interlace

Details

  • Catalogue text

    The pattern is related to the spiral interlocking design of Cat. no. 288 [EA1990.297]; however it is much less obviously floral, and instead close to interlacing. Although the ambiguity of reading the design is present to some degree, as in the previous fragments, the red lines are predominant in defining the pattern.

    The pattern is blurred on the reverse. Possibly 13th century, see Cat. no. 296 [EA1990.305].
