I have put all the flower patterns on one page, as they are quite small. The first group are stylised, and mostly rather similar. I am not quite sure if they are all flowers. One or two may just be space fillers. One of the stylised flowers with leaves is a fleur-de-lis. Then there is a group of more natural looking flowers, and finally an acorn. All these come from various borders from a pattern book of 1597.
