Panel (France), 1775–1800

Long, narrow shaped panel, probably from a skirt, that is narrower at the top and curved at the bottom. Cream-white twill weave with brocading in a small floral design. Embroidered in multicolored silks, metallic threads and paillettes. Narrow borders and festoons of flowers extend across the panel, each caught with a ribbon and tassels in metallic thread.
