The embroidery has been removed from the frame to clean the glass and refurbish the back. There are no inscriptions but it was interesting to find the name of a retailer written in pencil on a section of panelling holding the embroidery in the frame. The name is H. Morell 17 & 18 Great St. Andrew Street Bloomsbury, London. The V&A have two trade catalogues by this name from the 1880s to around 1910. They advertise all manner of goods including glass and picture frames.
