The customer requested this piece of textile (possibly once a purely decorative cushion cover) reduced in size and didn’t want a mount around it. This meant a fillet was used just under the edges to keep the beadwork from touching the glass. A narrow box was constructed at the back to hold the stretched tapestry as the moulding chosen only had a shallow rebate. Art glass was used which is virtually invisible, gives UV protection and wonderful clarity to view the detail of the embroidery.
