, this panel is again held in an elegant colour scheme of subtle yellows, greens and blues and a trace of red.

The centre piece is formed by a decorative arrangement of flowers in a vase, flanked to the top and the bottom by a human figure. The figure at the top wears a plumed helmet in the manner of a knight.

Tapestry weave in wool and silk, with some repairs.

The panel is bordered by a modern hand woven galon.
