Description

The dark blue wool strip has red wool edging and an unbleached cotton back. There is white beading on the edge. There are two frog-like outlines, one in light blue and white, one in medium blue and white. There is a cloud-like outline in medium blue and white (and a half cloud at the broken end). There is an "X" outline in light blue and pink.

It has a wooden dowel at one end. The other end is broken, and an indeterminate amount of the strip is missing.
