DescriptionDesign of concentric circles filled with floral ornament of varied and contrasting nature, cypresses, and stylized birds around a central medallion. Covers of this kind were sometimes placed over horse-saddles, when required to protect them from the heat of the sun. Another use for circular cloths was to cover the large round trays used to carry gifts for presentation. Lined with printed cotton of allover scallops and flowers. Edged with narrow fringed band, mainly light green.
