Narrow beading pattern

Narrow panel, probably for a towel rack. Originally the background was an allover bright red, but probably that was not included in the original pattern. A two color background, light in the centre and darker in the background, matches similar patterns, and blue contrasts better with the brown color range of the motif. Of course, suit your own taste.

We have no permission to include the original images (asked, but never received an answer). Pattern reconstructed, corrected and adapted by Sytske Wijnsma.
