(aa) Collar of a shirt in tapestry woven cloth.


Diam. of inside of neck 8.5. Width of band 3

Tapestry woven alternate narrow bands, colours(?). Decorated with gold sequins, at intervals about 2.5, large 1.6 in diam. & small 1.3 in diam. alternately.

Body of garment of ordinary fine cloth, to the edges of which braids 1 cm wide were sewn. One piece of the cloth (possibly not from this garment) was only about 5 cm wide, and had braid sewn on either edge. This must obviously have been a child's garment.

Treatment: Sprayed with solution of celluloid in amylacetate.
