Ground of silver, with the design of flowers woven with dull pinks, shading into violets, light and dark green silk and gold thread. The metal thread is made by winding silk with silver or silver gilt. Two pieces of card-board, one covered with brocade, the other with pink silk, joined together to make a pocket. On one side is a cross, and trimming of gold lace. Gold tassels on the four corners. Made from the same brocade as 85.288 and 85.289, and meant to be used with them.
