Tours is inspired by a brightly coloured green and gold woven silk damask dating from the midnineteenth century. The pattern shows scrolling acanthus leaves with flowers and bunches of quince fruit. Its focal point is a stylised flower with an artichoke centre. Designs like this were popular in Europe from the 1500s onwards being woven in many countries such as Italy France Spain and Britain. The ground of this design simulates the natural effect of silk and is not meant to match on the join.
