    Indian Block-Printed Textiles in Egypt: The Newberry Collection in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford

    Wide and narrow bands in alternation; the wide bands have a repeat of five motifs. These are a small eight-petalled blue rosette set in a white circle, a twelve-petalled carnation, a diamond-shape with an eight-petalled rosette at the centre, a thirteen-petalled rosette, and a cluster of nine small crosses. Half-rosettes along the sides have seven petals each. This is repeated four times. A narrow band is set between each wide one, with a running vine and separate leaves. A blue background.

    An open seam and a hem, sewn with a running stitch.
