Within the areas of textile production it was that of embroidery, which remained at this time within the domestic sphere of production and was completed by many women in society, aristocratic women, and daughters of professional families. The techniques were learnt by completing samplers and developed on to more elaborate pieces used for clothing and as decoration for luxury items, the skills to be admired and the subject matters serving as moral lessons. Subjects being naturalistic, pastoral and often being Biblical, and at this time of political and religious upheaval, and loyalties were implied through the inclusion of particular figures. With figures wearing contemporary dress it was ambiguous as to the personalities they were depicting, and the subject matter is not always identifiable, as in the present panel, at this time. Pattern books emerged which had a great influence on design. An Italian, Federico Vinciolo published a pattern book, which due to popularity had to be constantly reprinted. European printers were all influenced by each other. In England illustrations in herbals were initially the source for inspiration, which later in the 17th century were supplied as patterns by the print sellers and merchants marked satin panels with the designs which could be purchased, worked by the embroiderer in the techniques and colours she desired, and then could be brought back to the merchant to be made up into mirrors or caskets, which could be individualised to the requirements of the client with regard to the contents of the casket. The present panel is likely to have been made up for a casket and possibly the lid, with the side borders having been the applied to the sides of the lid.
