A very desirable fragment of English polychrome embroidered linen circa 1625. This ancient James I fragment originates from a Jacobean ladies item of clothing, either a jacket or head cloth. The fragment is housed in the most wonderful later George III period lemon gilt frame with verre eglomise glass mount. Original suspension loop on the reverse allowing this ancient example to be ready to hang.
Our rare little fragment displays stunning rinceau or coiling stem pattern with the floral and fruiting tendril motifs including Borage and Heart ease ( Pansy), grapes or peapods. All of these symbolic motifs are similar to those found on contemporary embroidered jackets / waistcoats and gent's nightcaps see the Margaret Clayton Plimoth Plantation Jacket and earlier sweet bags of the Elizabethan period. See similar embroidered examples to ours at The Met, New York, The Winterthur and The MFA, Boston.

Measuring: Frame width 7.25 inch (18 cm) by height 6.5 inch (16.5 cm). Frame depth 7/8 inch (2.5 cm). Fragment measuring approximately width 3.75 inch (9.5 cm) by height 3 inch (7.5 cm).

Condition: It is unlined and has been tacked with thread by its corners to acid free tissue. The colors are not too faded; you can still see hints of the original vibrancy. Worked upon plain weave un-dyed linen in twisted chain stitch and detached needlepoint stitch.
