About this artwork

Designer, teacher, and author Ann Macbeth published this design in the fine and decorative arts magazine The Studio in 1905. The embroidery motif was intended to be part of a wall decoration. The panel exhibited here may have been made by an amateur needleworker who bought the pattern as part of a kit. Retailers including the London department store Liberty commissioned work from Macbeth for their customers.
