This elegant panel was inspired by a 16th century Persian enamelled wall-tile.  Combining stumpwork, goldwork and surface embroidery techniques, this ogival tile is worked on an ivory silk background with silks, gold metallic threads, beads and tiny spangles.  The design features a stylised peony flower, peony buds with detached petals, feathery cobalt knapweed and beaded prunus blossoms, and is enclosed by an ornate border worked in gold metallic threads and beads.
