The design is made up of vertical undulating garlands of pearls and ovals framed with pearls over undulating stylized palm leaves of light tan color with dark reddish-brown stipples separated by undulating garlands of dots of light tan color over a dark reddish-brown ground. The pearls are colored with white; the ovals are colored with purple, orange and green.
