What a fabulous find! In a drawer in a large Liberty of London shopping bag, this was purchased by my Grandmother on a trip to London in the 1980s. I'm not certain the shopping bag is indicative of where it was purchased simply a means to carry it home. She was much more likely to have purchased it from a needlework shop - although Liberty does carry an extensive needlework line.
I did open the taped package in order to photograph it. The kit includes a large and easy to read pattern ( including a Henry the 8th and his 6 wives companion piece) - 1. Anchor Tapisserie Wool 2. Anchor Stranded Cotton 3. spool of gold metallic thread 4. white pearl beads 5. 80 cm single thread tapestry canvas (29" wide by 20" high)
This kit will create a spectacular piece, one to treasure forever. It does have an extensive list of threads and accessories, however I do not consider this to be only for the most experienced stitcher. I woud tackle this (if only I had the time) and I will call myself a moderately experienced stitcher. Hope that helps! Please let us know if you have any questions.
