The silk embroidery in various stitches that decorates this joined panel of satin would almost certainly have been professional work, and intended for a dress. Such an item of clothing would have been costly and highly prized, and when no longer in fashion might have been donated to the church to be remade as vestments; this particular silk appears to have been used as a chalice veil. A hanging embroidered in silk on a linen ground in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (Museum no. T.402-1921)20 appears to follow the same basic pattern. Bearing in mind the Acts of Union of 1706 and 1707 it is interesting to note the English Tudor rose and the Scottish thistle among the flowers. Framed.
