A beautiful example of 18th Century embroidery, this piece was part of an elaborate bed set, comprising coverlet, bolster cover, four pillow covers and three valances. It came from the Vyvyan family of Cornwall, and by family tradition was worked by Mary Vyvyan when her husband Sir Richard Vyvyan was imprisoned in the Tower of London in 1715. However, the quality of the work and extensive use of metal thread suggest that it was professionally made. It is worked in long and short, satin, stem and back stitches.embroidery and is now in the Victoria and Albert Museum. - 18th century, vintage, antique, needlework,
