An important and rare, 17th Century raised stumpwork panel. Metal purl and beadwork, upon ivory coloured satin ground, worked in polychrome silks in a variety of stitches, central oval reserve depicting King Solomon greeting the arrival of the Queen of Sheba, the ground decorated with flowers, trees, insects, hare and hound, lion and stag. Oak sprigs with acorns, the corners with oval reserves with figures emblematic of the four continents. Framed and glazed in a rosewood frame. By family tradition this stump work panel has been handed down in a direct line of the family. The Goulden family descend from French Huguenots who settled in Spitalfields. They were weavers and silk thrusters and it is recorded that two members of the family were apprenticed to the Weavers of London in 1630 By family tradition the date 1679 was once visible on one of the townscape pennants now obliterated.
