  • Note
    Curator's note: Although this pecha cloth and tie has been associated with manuscript 50.31.112, this manuscript already has a cover and set of ties. It is likely to belong to one of the other pecha, but as yet, it hasn't been identified which this is. One set of ties has a tag reading, TB9, so could belong to 50.31.103.
