clothing; headscarf

Headscarf formed of a square piece of cream cloth embroidered in one corner in silks in chain stitch with a bouquet motif and waves on the two edges adjacent to the corner. The embroidery is in yellow, pale blue, brown, orange, black and pink. All four sides have some edging in cream silk threads, and along two sides are bobbles mostly in pinks, with one green and one blue on each side, and some similarly spaced bunches of wool yarn in similar colours. In some places the pink colour has run into the cream fabric.
