Warp, yellow wool; weft, red wool; pile, wool; 16 Persian (Sehna) knots to a square centimeter. The ground of the mainfield is dark blue, a large red and yellow diamond with a blue cross in the middle and two white conventional angular leaf-forms, with smaller diamonds on the sides, fill the field. This is surrounded by a white border with a design of an undulating stem, cross-like flowers and heart-shaped leaves. Light green and brown are used in small quantities. The sides are overcast with brown wool. Like 15.848 but with the colors differently arranged.
