Linen Kirru Pillow Aulestia
Handmade linen cloth with blue embroidery and white embroidered border; the border was added by donor in 1996 but the rest may have been around for 200 years, though not likely; the Kirru was attached to one side of a pillow; the border on the outside added in 1996 is intricate embroidery that is scalloped around the edges; the linen itself is fairly rough and is of a slightly dirtier white than the border; the blue embroidery is lines, shapes and triangles throughout and is fairly intricate; the back is the back of the embroidery as it was one piece of linen; found in CS1.CAB3.SHF4 by Jeff Wahsburn on 7/23/2009
