Tile of yellowish sandstone, five-sided in shape, carved with a countersunk design and covered with enamel colours, Fathabad, 14th century.
Plain weave cotton embroidered with silk in straight stitches.
Difficult to line-up this fragment, but the proper position probably has the long straight side down the right and the point mid-way down the left.
The main pattern is a series of diagonal lines from lower right to upper left. These are chevron lines in blue and green.
There are two sizes of stripes:
 narrow stripes: a five-petalled flower outlined in black infilled with shades of grey with pink and yellow details; another five-petalled flower outlined in black in the form of an iris with no coloured details.
 much wider stripes in two designs: the larger of the two has several large faded pink blossoms with few details; the smaller stripe contains some black-outlined star-shaped flowers.
Threads: white, dark green, green, blue [one shade of blue is actually blue and light blue plied together], black, light orange, yellow, pink silk; 2S
Plain weave cotton embroidered with silk in straight stitches.
Two patches in the upper right hand corner; one in the upper left hand corner; seams across the width in the upper part.
Directional design with the top of the pattern at the bottom of the panel, so that the wearer saw the correct pattern.
The main pattern is a series of diagonal lines from lower right to upper left. These are chevron lines in yellow and green with pink and blue edges.
There are two sizes of stripes:
 narrow stripes: downward pointing tree-like pointed blossom in yellow and pink with 4 pink circles in the centre, each with a blue dot. There is a small blue/light blue pansy-like flower near its base.
 wider stripes with two designs: [a] a lollipop-like flower: long pink stem with head of concentric circles in green, yellow, dark blue, pink alternating with a less dominant lollipop flower in which the head is filled with small segments in pink, blue and green. [b] Dark green with densely packed motifs.
There are no narrow side border because the sides have been cut.
The bottom border has downward pointing red flowers with three round petals alternating with blue/light blue ones.
Threads: 2S silk: blue, light blue, red, dark green, yellow, green, pink, orange, white, light beige.

It contains a central dark red star in a yellow octagon surrounded by four dark red blossoms and two brown and two light blue ones. The ground of the cover is black. There is a pink ground cartouche along each side; it contains three angular light blue sections; the central one contains an orange cartouche with a blue S-shaped stem and two dark red blossoms; the other two contain a central red blossom between two stylised figures [see other items from group 1 to see the probably origin of this design]. In the lower left hand side one of these figures has been replaced by a leaf. There is a white lozenge in each corner filled with a blue lozenge and small coloured motifs. White and orange stylised blossoms surround the main motifs.
