Orphrey, silk and metal embroidered on red velvet panel, fringed. Central panel shows three niched figures arranged vertically. Bottom is an angel with a banner, center is and old man with a cross(St. Jerome or St. Anthony?), top figure is another angel. See "Three Ecclesiastical Textiles from FAMSF" by Kazmierowski, 1984: The top and bottom panels show an angel with instruments of the Passion and the wounds of Christ displayed on a cloth. The central panel depicts St. Andrew with an obverse cross. The piece has likely been made up from fragments of other ecclesiastical fragments as there are mismatching galloons and seams, and the series(of the Passion) is incomplete.
