Exquisitely embroidered padded gold metal and silk embroidered panel has many beautiful motifs of flowers, foliage and swags.
There are very fine tambour embroidery, padded gold/silver work swags, gold metal sequins, and other stitches.
Silk satin fabric is backed with heavy cotton.
This was a panel in a French Church textile.
Remarkable condition with fray to the ivory silk and some faint darkening to the gold and silver work.
