Description

kelim. Design: cat? (birds in square) with interlocking scroll border, needle knitting on both ends; red, rose, purple, blue, brown, yellow and white.

Small tapestry woven band with a design of interlocking scrolls along the border, two large creatures, and three small white squares with a creature (bird?) inside. Small rectangles of negative space in the tapestry create a brick-like effect around these white squares. Warp ends are needle-knit bound. There is evidence (small ties along the warp direction) that this piece was attached to something else. Color(s): Red, white, blue, yellow and brown.
