Fragment of a border

A close design of flowers, leaves, grapes and other fruit, woven with dull blues, green, red, and dull light-brown wool, and white and yellow silk. On one edge a much faded guilloche-like design; the most conspicuous part of which is the straight green stem which runs through the middle.
