Length 109 cm

An example of the most beautiful embroidery of the 19th century – known as Ayreshire work – hand work on hand woven muslin – satin stitch dots often done by children – chain stitch, darning stitch and drawn fabric stitches with couching in a thicker thread to add to variety and vary the tones of white.

Given to me for my collection by Constance Howard in 1975 on her retirement from Head of the Embroidery department at Goldsmiths College.
