Try looking up antique embroidery on linen...lots of examples. I was on UK ebay and almost nothing was priced below $150? It is well done.
Ooh Thank you! I haven't yet looked on eBay!
It is definitely based on older English embroidery techniques, but I think it was made in the 20th century (1930s+). The vibrance of the blue and red threads makes me think they contain artificial dyes. The sheen of the threads could be because of silk content, or it could be because there is a synthetic component in the thread makeup. I have a similar piece of fabric and it was made in India.
