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.
