Folio, designs -linen


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.
