Queen Anne Embroidery

Yellow muga silk from Dacca, Bengal, India was a very popular colour in the early 18th century. This small fragment would be lovely framed.  I have other fragments similar.


the natural linen embroidered in bright yellow and terracotta twisted silks, with a large flowerhead, with three dimensional stamens, leaves and smaller flowers, on a linen ground worked in muga silk in back stitch with small scrolls.

4 1/2 x 11 in/ 11 x 28 cm.


Very good.
