Deep mustard yellow silk ground. The design of oval medallions with pointed ends, separated by knotted lines and rosette-like flowers and enclosing a symmetrical, conventional group of flowers, is woven with deep yellow, white and deep pink silk. The white and yellow silk was origionally wound with metal thread. The deep pink silk forms the pile.
