This piece shows a new variation on the typical roundel style samitums of the earlier periods. Two peacocks face each other with tails raised. The shape of the peacock raised tails is followed by a curved line followed by two bands of script and another outline. between tehse designs are paris fo sphinxes.</p><p>The piece measures 9" square and shows two full across repeats, two repeats vertically and one nearly complete repeat of the design. Weibel called this plain compound cloth, but I have listed it as taquete, which is my interpreation of what Weibel meant by the term plain compound cloth.
