The border of a sash woven with a gold ground [silver-gilt strip close S-wound on yellow silk core] with a band of inward and outward facing pink carnations in profile alternating with a light blue flower with pink centre running along the bottom and top. The same design on a much smaller scale forms the side borders, each edged with a line of tiny white flowerheads. The main panel contains 4 white vases standing on a pink dish with a pair of light green leaves. A semi-circle of pink tri-lobed motifs, dark green leaves and white flowerheads is over each vase. Above this is a tall stem with a central pink flower, 2 pairs of pink flowers and a large fan-shaped pink carnation at the top.
This pattern on the left hand side is the same height but the width has been squashed-in down its left hand side. Not certain why.
Backing: pieced; green satin ground woven with yellow silk warp and blue cotton weft; pattern of undulating parallel stems with flowers with a red centre.
Description: Woven silk.
Dark blue satin ground with a pattern of offset floral motifs each taking the form of either a stem with three flowers or a single flower enclosed by 2 leaves or a single flower surrounded by green leaves. The coloured weft which floats across the back, is green, yellow, red, light blue and pink and light brown forms the outlines. There are five different motifs, one per row apparently with alternate colour combinations.
Described from the top downwards:
 a spray of three carnations;
 a red and light blue flower and two red buds;
 a spray of three flowers;
 a flower enclosed by leaves and with small buds edging the leaves;
 a spray of three flowers, each with five petals.

Displayed behind glass.
Pink ground. There is an outer band with an undulating line forming a rounded arch enclosing a blue or red pointed carnation. There is a pair of pale leaves where the line touches the inner border. This band is not quilted and also forms the inner rectangular panel. There is a main border on three sides: it contains isolated, inward facing sprigs of 3 carnations, blue alternating with red except in the lower right hand corner where there are 2 blue ones. It is quilted in a scale pattern.
The central rectangular panel contains a lobed niche. Above it the spandrels have been filled with a diamond lattice, each diamond contains a bud. The same blue or red carnation sprays are in irregularly spaced offset rows and there is a random scattering of a small snowdrop-like flower. 5 of these plus 9 buds form a ring around a circular medallion at the top of the niche which contains an illegible inscription. The ground of the niche is quilted with a scale pattern.
Facing: striped silk with a small floral motif.
Cover, plain weave cotton embroidered with silk in running, straight and chain stitches, padded and quilted, backed with roller printed cotton and faced with plain weave silk, with added motifs in couched metal plate.
Dull brown ground with a border of outward facing floral sprigs with 3 red carnations per stem. The ground is worked with orange thread to form scale-like quilting. There is an inner and outer border with a green meander, green leaves and a red trefoil flower outlined in green.
There is a lobed roundel in the centre formed by a green band. It contains a red circle with white central marking. This is enclosed within an 8-pointed green star which links 4 green and red trees and 4 small carnation sprigs. There are other small red flowers attached to the stem and also isolated sprigs with 3 red flowers.
A quarter of the roundel is in each corner.
The rest of the ground is decorated with scattered carnation sprigs which are upright in the lower half, and downward pointing in the upper half. The ground is quilted in a scale pattern.
Three leaf-like motifs in the lower part are crudely worked with metal thread couched with green silk; there is also some metal thread at the top of the lowermost tree in the roundel.
Threads: red, green and orange.
Metal Thread: silver and gold metal strip [plate].
Backing: white ground with a small red flower and leaves; probably European.
Facing: bias cut striped silk, dark red with yellow.

Prayer mat, plain weave cotton, resist dyed, block printed, padded and quilted.
Displayed behind glass.
Borders from the outside:
 narrow yellow ground with a fine meander linking a small red flower and green leaves. This is either side of a wider white ground border with an elegant meander with a blue carnation, a pink carnation slightly overlapping a blue flower, and 2 other arrangements of predominantly pink flowers.
 Main border: white ground with fine black lines forming an ogival lattice and straight black lines through flowers and leaves forming a diamond lattice. There is a blue flower at each corner of the diamonds and the ogival lattice divides each diamond into 4 sections - 2 contain a red/pink flower and leaves and 2 contain an almost circular arrangement of 3 flowers and leaves with a 4th lilac-like blossom linking the 2 adjacent sections.

 red ground with white pattern of a rosette and scrolls and elongated leaves.
 yellow ground with red 4-petalled flower alternating with a diagonal green leaf.
The central panel is divided into a lobed niche by a yellow ground band with a meandering stem and red flowers. The spandrels have a white ground divided into a small diamond lattice each diamond containing a small carnation. The ground of the niche is speckled mauve with white boteh-shaped spaces in offset rows, each filled with a delicate leafy floral spray bending to the left. These motifs are slightly smaller towards the top of the niche. The speckled ground seems unusual.
The quilting is difficult to see but may be diagonal lines which meet along the central vertical axis to form a chevron pattern.

Elsewhere there are swirling yellow stems and narrow green leaves in regular curving arabesques, enclosing further palmettes and rosettes that are predominantly green and bearing small blue flowers and larger blue rosettes.
Main border: left-hand side and lower only. Red ground with a yellow meandering stem along the outer edge from which spring a profusion of flowers and leaves - blue carnations rising from a green fruit-like motif, alternating with tall, slim yellow tulips with outer blue petals.
