Folio, designs -linen

Description:

Design for embroidery on linen tablecloth or bedspread. Pencil on paper. The design is for a large corner motif of a cornucopia of flowers with garlands and wreaths of leaves, in a classical style. The designer has added somehandwritten notes along an edge of the design -'Make the centres of flowers fairly full, keep just outside drawing'. The design shows signs of having been 'pricked' in preparation for use in the transfer of design to cloth.
