Physical description

Linen damask. All round is a wavy floral border with a dice edging. The field is occupied by a repeating band of various country scenes. On the left is a man wheeling a wheelbarrow full of vegetables. Next to him is a man threatening a woman with a rake. Below them are two birds and a wooden-legged man walking with two sticks, then a large house on a hill in a deer park with a lake with a bridge over it and white houses descending the hillside. Next is a huntsman with a hound, apparently chasing the deer in the park.
