A large complex star-like design and smaller less articulated one fill the field
of this soumak bag. The wide main border also has similar star-like designs,
which are separated by small-paired spacers used only within the horizontal
borders. Is this a simplified version of the main border design mentioned in
the previous plate's description?
The use of white cotton highlights is also very unusual for an example made
well before the mid-nineteenth century.
