The abrashed rust-red field devolves into arabesque-patterned corners, and each displays a quarter of the central sub-medallion. The ecru sub-field displays palmettes and spiral vinery. Unusually, the slender escutcheon pendants are navy, while the medallion itself is red. Navy border with tilted corner petal palmettes and an arcade meander vine enclosing upright flowers and slender palmettes. Fine urban weave on, cotton. Short, velvety pile of Manchester-spun Merino wool. Good condition.
