Folded Paper Pattern for Embroidery with Design for a Cushion with a Branch with Morning Glory Flowers

Designer Elvira Mary Courbould [E. M. C.] British

Not on view

Folded paper pattern for embroidery, part of a series of 12 that might have been part of a book of embroidery designs, possibly designed by Elvira Mary Courbould. This type of books would be purchased for women to engage in needlework activities and embroidery at the home, decorating a variety of textiles for interiors or to be used in the making of dresses for the members of the household. This plate, titled "Morning Glory: Cushion", contains a large branch of morning glory flowers and flower buds and stylized leaves that scrolls to make up an inverse C-curve, which was meant to be embroidered on to a cushion.
