public_access_description
This fragment of velvet is of exceptional quality, with a deep pile of crimson silk and closely set brocading wefts of metal thread. It was acquired by the museum as Turkish, 17th or 18th century, but is now believed to have been woven in Italy under strong Turkish influence.
