Warp: white cotton; Z2S; 30 threads per inch (130 per dm). Weft: main weft: gold-coloured cotton and gold coloured silk; 3 shoots of weft (1 cotton, 1 silk, 1 cotton) after each row of knots; 12 knots per inch (50 per dm). Brocaded weft: 2 types metal thread; silver strip around golden silk and silver strip around white silk, the silk is z spun. Brocaded over an average of 4 threads. Pile: Silk; 8 colours (faded): yellow, light orange, green, dark blue, blue, light blue, black, white; asymmetrical knot open to left, tied around 2 warp threads; 180 knots per sq. inch (3250 per sq. dm.) Side finish: cut End finish: cut Design: Field: metallic brocading provides the ground. In the centre of the present gragment are a pair of white lilies meeting on the horizontal plane. They are veined in dark blue and were outlined in black. Yellow/light blue leaves form a square frame beyond which on the lower and upper sides is a large area of orange with a black, multi-curvilinear outline in black, and each supporting a blue palmette containing a blossom of metal brocading with yellow stems. To the left and right of the central square - and facing inwards - is a large, blossom-like form now grey but perhaps once light purple. Each extends as a pair of horns towards the centre and each has a scalloped pendant. These forms contain a white blossom with orange centre and yellow outer decoration, and are supported by pairs of green saz leaves on a stout yellow stem which meanders around much of the field to write the figures described above and form dark blue, five-petalled rosettes placed beyond each corner of the central square, other small blossoms of two-tone leaves all on blue stems. Above and below the blue palmettes white stems interact with the yellow to form a diamond shape which reinforces the geometry of the total design. Outside this whole area stems and their leaves are dark blue and link a crowd of multi-coloured flowers and leaves. The upper centre has a large, horned blue blossom and wihin it a green palmette, itself containing a flower. Part of this design survives in the lower centre, and against the side borders are two halves of a large yellow motif inside which appears to be the half of a palmette outlined in dark blue. Main border: the incomplete outer borders of the fragment may be the carpet's main border. The ground is green and a yellow meander links remains of white flowers. Inner border: a vertical strip showing half only of reciprocal twinned trefoils in white, orange and light blue.
