Floral forms of very fine needle point in which are worked, by leaving a little dotted outline, birds, lizards, animals of various kinds, cupid shooting his bow and arrow, and a man standing with a stick in his hand before what is probably meant for four men. This fine needle-work has been mended very badly with brides of coarse thread.
