Look at this as a textile, and one sees an opulent velvet, part of a grand tradition. The sinuous curves of the trellis are seen on carpets from Mughal India through Persia and become angular in the Caucasus, but on a sumptuous textile how graceful the folds of a garment would compliment this beautiful design. Each compartment contains an urn, green striped and ending in a cinnabar finial with s bouquet with various stylized cinnabar and amber blossoms and imaginative leaves. Along the curves of the trellis are more subtle amber and ton – sur – ton flowers that are entwined with tendrils that grow and move over the trellis. The main border, with urns and swags, scrolls and leaves, is a formal frame that encloses this evocative weaving.
