The ground is covered with a red and gold diaper design; on this is a design of conventional flowers woven with yellow silk and gold thread. The gold thread was made by winding yellow silk with thin strips of silver gilt. It is so small and pieced so many times that it is impossible to tell its exact country or date.
Gift of Mrs. George Washington Wales
