This ornate circular panel was inspired by a 17th century Syrian enamelled wall-tile. Combining stumpwork, goldwork and surface embroidery techniques, this tile is worked on an ivory silk background with silks, gold metallic threads, beads and tiny spangles. The design features a stylised pomegranate flower, purple iris, white pear flowers with detached petals and beaded prunus blossoms, and is enclosed by an ornate border worked in gold metallic threads and beads.
