Physical Description

Black sateen piano cover with embroidered names. An embroidered central arch of three lines of adjoining stem stitch in yellow, brown and red frames the name, Rev F Albury. Ten names radiate from and above the arch and three horizontal rows of names sit below it. All the names are stem stitched in cursive with a combination of red and yellow threads - one of each. The measured section of cloth with the names is only a small part of a much bigger object.
