The colour combination is exquisite.
Four large pockets, each with a different large flowrehead, flanked by leaf scrolls containing flowers including jonquil and pinks (carantions), each stiffened with card, a border of a leaf meander interspersed with small flower heads, all worked in soft shades of apricot, old gold, green, blue and ivory floss silks with gold filé infill in basket weave and outlining, all on a saxe blue silk ground, the pockets edged with silk and metal fringing to the top and bottom of the pocket, the sides and the edges of the whole piece in metal thread braid, lined with original rich gold silk.
2ft x 13 1/2 in; 60 x 35 cm
Very very good. The very top needs a little tidying with a very few stitches. I can get this done.
