Opus Plumarium? now that is a new one for me.. sounds lovely though

Yes, they are! I especially like the birds. The one on the left could be split stitch since the shading follows around & are in sort of a line. The other 2 appear to be shaded differently, perhaps opus plumarium - long & short, straight filling stitches, or something similar. You usually don't see this type of realistic shading until the later 1500's.
Carol, What date is the painting?

both gown and cloth look lovely be nice to get a clearer picture or the embroidery though

The gown is lovely, and one I want to do someday, but take a look at the
tablecloth. The border is some very nice birds-some very realistic looking
birds and that is certainly a cloth. It also appears to have been sewn on
the cloth, or in it.
I am thinking that this is an embroidered inset....
