Historical & Contemporary Raised EmbroideryBook - 1987
During the 17th century, a highly decorative technique of raised embroidery became popular in Britain for use on pictures, caskets and mirror frames. We know it today as stumpwork. This book introduces the reader to the charm of surviving pieces, with their costumed figures and fantastic birds and animals, thickly scattered across the ground fabric with a fine disregard for scale or proportion.
