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 pattern is made up of a honeycomb pattern formed with rosettes of light tan color with offsetting thorns rendered with stipples of dark reddish-brown color over a light tan base. The center of the hexagons forming the honeycomb pattern are decorated with smaller hexagons framed by twelve pearls and adorned with a pearl in the center that form alternating vertical rows. These hexagons are colored with black, the pearls surrounding them are colored with white, and the pearl in the center is of gold color.
