Amongst our important collection of 17th-century embroidery will be found raised work (sometimes referred to as stump work), often embellished with precious stones, pearls, beads, spangles and coral. These charming items are highly sought after. Embroidery worked in other techniques, such as tent stitch, are to be found with both religious (usually Old Testament) and domestic subjects. Although such objects as coifs, caskets and purses are increasingly rare, we aim to have examples of the highest quality. 17th-century samplers of spot motif and band form, along with whitework and blackwork, may also be seen in the collection.
