Cloth of gold, much of the gold is gone leaving the yellow foundation threads visible. Across the bottom is a border of flowers of white, dull yellow (faded pink?) green, and dark blue, above this are three groups of blue flowers radiating from a star-like form. These are separated by bands of geometrical ornaments and spandrels filled with flowers–Cut, making the design incomplete.
