From a bedroom at Stoke Edith, Hertfordshire, this embroidery may represent the real garden at the site or an image of another fashionable garden. They were described as the work of members of the household but their huge scale suggests a professional workshop. The house was the home of Paul Foley, speaker of the House of Commons in 1697. The canvas is lines with silk and wool embroidery.
