No visit to the V&A is complete without looking at the embroidered pieces.
Some in the newly refurbished and newly opened European Galleries.
French Court Dress 1795-8
English jacket, early C17th
Its not just the embroidery that catches my eye.
Bracelet, 1500-1600, possibly belonging to Elizabeth I
Both the above from a Headcloth for a bed 1554-75
Embroidered cover 1592
My favourite piece of embroidery in the V&A, section of a cushion cover around 1600.
One of my favourite Art Nouveau pieces by CFA Voysey. 1896-1901.
Bad picture, lovely clock.
