3. Description (Cont.) Ends of lid cartouche, held by winged disc.
4. Contents. The first sight shewed a garment with elaborate bead-mesh
decoration, a gilt wooden head rest and a number of sandals. Below
there was a confused mass of cloth, elaborately decorated with
sequins, interfolded and bunched together. Mixed in which these were
more sandals, a glove, two necklaces, and some slippers caps or bags
of tiny beadwork. Some of the garments vide inf. were tapestry woven
in coloured thread.
The glove and some of the garments were those of a child. All the
cloth was in a very rotten condition, so that it was extremely
difficult to get any details as to size and shape, or to preserve any
pieces of them.
For details of the various objects, see succeeding cards.
