>What is stumpwork?

A form of padded embroidery done from the 1400 - 1700. It was used to
decorate picture frames, boxes and chests mostly. It became especially
popular in England during the reign of Charles I. Motifs includes the
king and queen, animals, castles, plants, lakes, etc. all done with no
perspective at all, i.e. a bumblebee might be bigger than a lion. More
info available if you want it!
