These two brocade fragments are sold separately and are attached to a light green backing. There are rows of gold in between rows containing green leaves. In these rows there are gold leaves with two red dots at the base of the leaf. These rows are outlined with two lines in red on both sides.
One fragment is a rectangle while the other is a trapazoid shape.
