Red silk ground with a design, repeated in a vertical row, of a conventional flowering plant, woven with cream-colored silk, and a little green silk. Two small birds, woven with cream-colored silk, stand on the petals of the flower, and two larger birds woven with green silk, on the lower leaves. The birds hold small branches in their beaks.
