Folio, designs -linen

Description:

Design for embroidery on linen tablecloth or bedspread. The delicate design of trailing 'stems' of shamrocks and leaves is triangular in form and most likely to have been used as a repeated motif on the centre of a large linen cloth. Originally drawn in pencil the paper shows signs of having been both 'pricked' and used to transfer the design to cloth in preparation for embroidery.
