Red woolen cloth, in which are two borders of tapestry weaving. The wider one has a red ground, at the bottom is a heart-shaped leaf with a pink and red center surrounded by light green, and with yellow veins and yellow and dark blue margins; above the leaf is a close design of stems enclosing pink and red buds and dark blue and white crosses. On each edge are yellow and blue borders. The narrower band has a dark blue ground; the design consists of blue and yellow circles enclosing a red disk with a fish on it. Between the medallions are tent-like and other indistinct forms. Much worn.
