Not On View
The middle section is pink felt very much faded and full of holes. The sides and border are embroidered closely with red, blue, neutral yellow and white cotton in chain-stitch. The design on a ground of coarse homespun of faded violet wool over white felt, consists of small rosettes “palms” and other conventional forms. Trimmed and bound with green leather. Very much moth eaten.
