This pattern is intended to represent a vase and flowers. A pair of slippers, worked in this style, would make a very suitable New Year's or Christmas Gift. The fruit and flowers are to be worked in colored silk, to imitate nature: the vase in gold color and green. 

[From Peterson's Magazine December 1860]
