Publisher Description

Needle work, which is still practised traditionally in every house, was once a splendid art, an art in which English workers were especially famous, so that, early in the Xlllth century, vestments embroidered in England were eagerly accepted in Rome, and the kind of work wrought here was known over Europe. Some beautiful fragments of embroidery worked in the Xth century, and many examples, belonging to the great period of the Xlllth and XlVth centuries, are preserved at the South Kensington Museum, which is particularly rich in specimens of this art.
