Miniature Embroidery for the Tudor & Stuart Dolls' House
Miniature embroideries from the Tudor age-all richly patterned and historically correct-are a brilliant touch in period dolls' houses. From sumptuous bed hangings and elaborate screens to imaginative, skillfully produced chair covers, footstools, and cushions, the variety will amaze and inspire. Canvaswork, stumpwork, crewelwork, and blackwork are just some of the techniques employed, and instructions cover design transfers, bonding, coloring, and finishing. Among the splendid pieces: Oxburgh Bed Hangings, originally stitched by Queen Mary of Scots, with panels featuring dozens of animal, floral, fruit, and other motifs; a glittering Gold Trellis Bedcover and Pillow; a Landscape Carpet (from an original in the Victoria and Albert Museum), and decorative mirror frames, pincushions, and a Millefleurs screen.
