Thin white linen with wide silk selvedges: on the ends are deep borders of closely arranged branches of conventional flowers and leaves. Some of the flowers suggest rosettes, others are in profile. The design is worked with very pale pink, yellow, light and dark green, and light blue silk. Patched in places.
