1797 inscribed on central hexagon
The patchwork is made up of a variety of printed and painted eighteenth century textiles, including two patches taken from what appear to be the same textile (red printed on white ground). One shows a female figure, and the other a man. Both are within oval frames. There are also numerous plants and flowers.
