Seat Cushion Cover (Octagon and Diamond Lattice with People)

interlocked tapestry

51 x 52.5 cm

This has the same basic design as SW 11, but here the lattice is in red and ivory and the motif within the diamonds is different. The colours are also stronger. While not part of the same marriage set as SW 17, it is clearly from the same village and period.
