This panel was probably intended to form part of a woman’s jacket. The triangular piece of fabric, called a gore, inserted into the lower edge, suggests it served as one of the jacket fronts. It is embroidered in a repeating pattern of strawberries in shades of pink and red. The silver-gilt thread is worked mainly in plaited braid stitch and the silks in detached button-hole stitch. Such vibrantly embellished jackets were a popular style in English women’s fashions of the late 16th and early 17th centuries.
