colour. Worn and ragged, and pattern indeterminate but evidently of Chinese type. The fabric is badly held together, and the figuring yarns are only slightly held to back of fabric by a very delicate binding woof ; remains of soft green silk lining. (Cf. Ha. i. 0031, Pl. CXII.)
Inside pouch is sawdust, possibly sandal, and the article may have been a perfume sachet. The shape is certainly that of the modern ' atar-dan'. Pouch, length 5r", width at bottom 34".
M. z. xxvii. oog. Bag of striped woollen material resembling fine darri; ground, golden buff; stripes, E apart and i" broad, composed of bright red band and dull green band divided by thin line of buff and edged on outer sides by indigo line; woven very regularly on thick warp, giving slight corded effect.
Bag made by folding a long strip of the material end to end, and sewing the long edges together with blue yarn; at mouth a hem and orig. a drawing-string; now, hem partly cut off R. and L. of a central point, and the two strips so achieved plaited together and apparently used as a carrying strap. Coarse patches have been added at bottom angles and another at mouth; a piece of black square ' military' cord is attached as a sort of tassel to middle of bottom edge. Evidently a bag for carrying
coins and the like ; much discoloured and torn in places. I or X 6".
