(No reviews yet) Write a Review

This small exotic panel was inspired by a 16th century Persian enamelled wall-tile. Combining stumpwork, goldwork, and surface embroidery techniques, this ogival panel is embroidered on an ivory silk background with silks, gold metallic threads, beads and tiny gold spangles. The design features a stylised peony flower, peony buds with detached petals, feathery knapweed, and beaded blossoms. The panel is enclosed by an ornate scalloped border worked in gold metallic threads and beads. It may be framed or made into a box top or book cover.
