The ground is of yellow silk and tarnished metal thread. The indistinct design of large diamond-shaped medallions, the irregular edges of which are made by S-shaped leaves and flowers, a conventional, symmetrical arrangement of branches of small flowers, and large palmette-like forms, is woven with white and faded pink silk and metal thread. Much worn so that it is very difficult to see the design.
