The ground is woven with yellow silk and silver and gilt. The design, which consists of undulating vines, bearing flowers resembling roses, carnations, daisies, etc., is of green, yellow, white, blue, brown and pink. On two sides are narrow borders in which are indistinct spots of the same colors. These spots were probably meant for buds of flowers.
