Green satin ground, with part of a design of flowers and leaves, woven of red, pink, yellow and olive-green silk, and silver thread. Edged with narrow yellow gimp, and with a cross of wide yellow gimp. Above the gimp is a small piece of white silk. Such a small part of the design shows that it is impossible to tell the exact country or date of this piece, but it could not possibly have been made earlier than the laast part of the 17th cent., and is probably of a later date.
