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 strips of alternating lens-shapes and circles framed by pearls, separated by vertical strips of lozenges over a striped background of light tan color and dark reddish-brown stipples. The lens-shapes are colored with purple and have red and black outlines; the circles are colored with red and the pearls around them are colored with white. The lozenges are all outlined with red color, and are colored alternatingly with yellow and black.
