Context: The value of textiles, as reflected by their price, were determined by the quality and amount of materials need to successfully create the design as well as by the sophistication of the pattern and the refinement of the technique employed to execute the project.
Although this piece is not the finest example of the style produced, the Italian Countess Phelps-Resse, who collected it at the turn of the century, valued it as a testament to the variety of goods available to the discerning shoppers of the 16th and 17th centuries.
