Light blue satin, on which is embroidered a bunch of tulips, carnations and anemones, with pinks, greens, yellow and white silk. Across the bottom is a solid band of embroidery of a conventional design. This piece is said in the register to be Spanish, but similar work was done in England, America, and many of the European countries.
