Piece, irregular rectangle, made of two pieces sewn together. Dark blue pattern on natural ground. Two wide stripes defined by white fretwork and delicate flowering vine against blue; between these, a vertically repeated unit showing a four-light stone Gothic window between clusters of lilies, roses and other flowers, ivy and a butterfly. Right-hand piece browned and slightly faded; light brown stains on both pieces. A few small holes.
