Gold ground woven so that a dull pinkish silk shows through. On this is a design of conventional flowers, and leaves of white, yellow, brown, and red cut-velvet. Narrow borders on two sides, and down the middle of red velvet, with waving lines, and flowers, of gold and white velvet. Much pieced and worn.
