Not On View
White linen with bands of reticella across each end. The linen apparently is not original; the designs of broad bands are not alike. Design: at one end circles and quarter circles within squares; at the other end large circles with eight, radiating points alternating with crudely shaped vases with pair of small animals on top, embroidered with knots, repaired. Fringe sewed on each end. Much repaired.
Gift of Philip Lehman in memory of his wife Carrie L. Lehman
