Superb Ewe woman’s cloth with a great variety of figurative and geometric supplementary weft float motifs framed by pairs of weft faced blocks in subtle muted colours on a blue and white check background. This check ground was called "guineafowl" after the speckled plumage of the bird. In excellent condition, dates from circa 1930-40.
