Antique 17th Century Raised Work Embroidered Slip Motifs Rare Charles II Period
Antique Embroidered Flowers Insects and Animal Motifs (framed), 17th (?) century | Difficult to pin an exact date because motifs like this were made from the late 16th to the 18th centuries. These remind me of the St Faith’s Church alter cloth rumored to be Elizabeth I's petticoat! From the seller: "Charles II Period English Circa 1680...fine petit point/ tent stitch slips...motifs that were worked separately and then applied...during the Elizabethan and Stuart periods"
