The Jacobean Fantasy design is a detail from a beautiful bedspread completed in Glasgow, Scotland. It is signed and dated by the embroiderer, “E.M. 1914”, the same year the First World War broke out in Europe. “E.M.” had a wonderful colour sense, combining soft deep pewter greys in a peaceful undertone and linking vibrant accents of bright colour with this continuous colour base.
