Louis XIV Needlepoint Panel:"Flora"

Gowned in court finery and garlanded in flowers, the Goddess Flora steps into a glade of poppy capsules (?) surrounded by stylized floral borders -- beauty in full bloom! Approximately 18-1/2 inches by 21-1/2 inches and in excellent condition, this superb example of wool-and-silk needlework might once have graced a noble seat-back or fire screen, French, late Seventeenth Century to early Eighteenth Century.
