English circa 1670.
During the 17th century, women, both rich and poor, were expected to become proficient in the skill of needlework. Only a privileged minority could afford both the time and the materials to produce a panel such as this, which would have been made to demonstrate the level of skill achieved as well as something highly decorative for the home.
