      Gorgeous! (And the sort of thing you wouldn't come up with if we
      didn't have the surviving example.) I'd hesitate to conclude that
      the original had _no_ closures -- simply that any closures were
      distinct from this decorative metalwork. The description suggests
      that it was originally attached to a fabric backing -- to which,
      presumably, any closure or buckle would have been attached.
