Made of more than one piece. The design is divided into four parallel bands. Two bands on one side show candelabra-like motifs. One of the two others shows two four-petal motifs, a bird (parrot?) and fish and the other shows animals and a putto (?) surrounded by floral motifs. The design is woven with green, yellow, dark and light brown and orange wool. The border is plain violet wool.
