A fine English needlework worked in both petit and gros point distinguished by a floral spray on a black background, contained within a reserve defined by ribbon-like, stylised acanthus leafs. The composition is framed by a wide border composed of floral cartouches set against a soft peach background. The overall style is quite characteristic of the late Victorian era.
