This charming mortif would have been one of many sewn to a bed hanging. This was embroidered during Charless II's reign.
A jonquil (small daffodil) in shades of yellow, on a curving stem, the base cut at an angle, mainly in wool but with ivory silk highlights,
4 in/ 10 cm
Now hand stitched to linen , pulled round acid free board ready for a frame. 5 3/4 x 5 1/4 in; 14 x 13 cm wide.
Excellent. The colour is good and unfaded.
