Piece, irregular rectangle, made of three pieces, sewn together. Chocolate brown ribbed taffeta ground brocaded with polychrome silks. Pattern shows a plinth supporting an urn containing strawberries; at left of plinth, sheep graze and drink from a pool; large-scale leaves and flowering branches issue from the scene and fill interspaces. A few brocading yarns rubbed, broken loose from ground.
