DescriptionThe double weave coverlet consists of indigo blue wool and natural cotton, with a repeating pattern of tables with stars at the corners within double circles, and tables with roses at the corners within single circles which overlap with the outer circle of the first unit. These two units alternate regularly, in addition to linear and lozenge borders down both sides and across the lower edge. There is a centre seam. The upper edge is hemmed, with remains of knotted fringe across the lower edge.
