Excerpt from The Burlington Magazine for Connoisseurs, Vol. 23: April to September, 1913
The colour, though now much faded, has been lovely and also varied, but there seems to be little attempt at shading. Some of the foliage, which is filled in with lines of stitching follow... ing the direction of the outline, has each separate line of a different tint. This treatment, which seems to be more a variation of colour than of tone, adds great refinement to this detail. The hair is often striped in two distinct colours, and the letters, which have no distinctive colour outline, are either of pale plum or of dark myrtle green, employed more or less at random, for a name is sometimes composed of a few letters of each tint. Decorative effect and surrounding colour would decide such detail. The couching thread which ties down the gold is of an Indian red, and, judging by the under-side, it has not faded much.
