This design is from an early 20th Century pelmet. In the 17th century, ‘Jacobean’ designs such as these would have depicted a full hunting scene with hounds and running stags, however by the early 20th century such compositions had evolved into a more decorative and peaceful version of the style. This design is part of a series which includes the Running Hare and the Phoenix & Tree Level 2 Crewel Work kits.
Stitches: Detached Fly, Satin, Crewel Stem, Satin, Long and Short as ‘soft shading’, French Knots, Seeding, Coral and a variation of Laid and Couched Work.
