Garthwaite's career as a silk designer is well documented, and many of her original designs, including that for this brocaded dress silk, are preserved in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. The naturalistically rendered flowers are typical of her work, which epitomizes high quality English silk weaving of the 18th century.
