Peacocks and sphinxes taquete

Peacocks and sphinxes taquete

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.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.
