A Rather expensive reproduction silk damask provenanced 1770's brown/shot blue. That's why we chose the blue embroidered stockings which pick up the blue in certain lights.

Got a close up of the stockings? I'm still struggling with embroidering on silk stockings and it would be very nice to compare some from other makers :D
