The ground is woven with silver thread. The design of two leaves arranged to suggest a heart partially enlcosing a large flower, from which spring a large flower and two leaves, and symmetrically arranged groups of curving stems bearing leaves and flowers, is woven with pink silk and silver. The pink silk outlines most of the design. The piece is not typical of any country or period, but is probably comparatively modern.
