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 horizontal rows of rosettes of eight petals with four pearls as pistils framed by interlacing garlands of branches of light tan color with pearls over an abstract honeycomb pattern rendered with stipples of dark reddish-brown color over a light tan base. The rosettes are colored alternatingly with orange and purple; the pearls are colored with white.
