Featuring bright and highly pigmented blue and orange petals that alternate in colour across diagonal paths, this cover provides an apt example of a the 'cintamani' motif, a pattern which has been interpreted on a variety of media and resonates across the far East. For an example of pottery tiles with a similar motif, see Petsopoulos 1982, p.90 no.53. 

This style can be identified initially through its use of repeated tri-petal flowers that follow the 'cintamani' codex, and through the use of tight crochet techniques. An eighteenth-century example can also be found in ibid. p.144, no.156, where tri-petal flowers alternate with a similar diagonal ‘wave’ pattern. A cover of similar stylistic design is published in Erber 1993, pp.252-3, no.G10. A similar motif is also seen in the Royal Ontario Museum, inv. no. 941.22.236 (see Gervers 1982, p.116, fig.34).
