Yellow silk tape with a fine repeating lozenge pattern placed all around the inner edge and the neck opening, metting in a “V” on the back beneath the yoke and defining the orphries. Worn through and stained in some areas. b: Of the same materials as “a” with three appliquéd crosses and the inner edge bordered with lozenge patterned yellow silk. Good condition.
