Charles Germain de Saint-Aubin (1721–1786), a designer to the French king Louis XV, published a treatise on embroidery in 1770 that has become one of the most important sources of technical information on eighteenth-century needlework. His book included specific instructions on a great variety of stitches incorporating silk floss, metal threads, and glass beads. Our beguiling necklace is based on an exquisite detail from an eighteenth-century French skirt in the Museum’s collection, which is meticulously embroidered in metal thread on lustrous pale green silk.
