Plain weave cotton embroidered with silk in surface darning on the diagonal and running stitch with couched metal thread. The coloured silk embroidery has been worked on a very fine cotton ground which has then been backed with a coarser cotton through which the couching has been done. This suggests that the silk embroidery was done and then the metal thread was added. The motifs are outlined with black blocks. Blue ground with a rigid pattern of large, multi-pointed 'gold' stars with a central light blue cross, alternating with smaller silver stars with a light green diamond. Between these two motifs are diagonal pointed cartouches with light green ground, a central lozenge and a tiny S- or Z-motif. There are no end borders. The border along the sides has a red ground with a line of 'gold' stars and silver pointed cartouches with green 'leaves'. Embroidery threads: 2S silk; blue, light blue, faded red, green, light green, dark green, black, pink. Metal thread: silver strip close S-wound on a white silk core couched with white silk and silver strip close S-wound on an orange silk core couched with orange silk.
