Rectangular sheet of paper with a textile design from a group, dated 1840, made in Mulhouse, Alsace, which was an important nineteenth-century center for textile production in the Haut-Rhin region of France. The design is made up of vertical stripes of ribbon of light tan color with dark reddish-brown stipples decorated with ovals flanked by two groups of eight pearls over a glitched background of light tan color over a dark reddish-brown base. The ovals are colored with orange, green and purple and outlined with red; the pearls are colored with white.
