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 alternating vertical rows of stylized flowers on stems with two leaves framed by an interlacing pattern of garlands of branches of light tan color with offsetting branches of dark reddish-brown color over a background of light tan color with dark reddish-brown stipples. The flowers have four petals and a rosette adorned with a pearl as pistils; the stems and leaves are decorated with pearls. The flowers are colored alternatingly with purple and orange, and are outlined with red. The rosettes forming the pistils are of red color, and the pearls are of white color.
