A Banarasi sari featuring a gold satin ground with gold metallic patterned diagonal stripes, small dots, and sprigs of berries. One end with large botehs above squares of smaller botehs, and borders of burgundy satin with a design in metallic thread depicting a lattice design of knotted fringe, probably a variation on jali work, ending in trompe l'oeil tassels.
