Textile Remnant "Governor Badger"

2001.281.1227 (RS235197)

Description

This overall piece with three attached colorways, three attached paper labels and one attached fabric label, represents a repeated motif. Stylized palms forming arabesques are linked by branches of thyme. It gives a circling and dancing composition. This effect is accentuated on the sample of the Historic New England's collections thanks to the golden color.
