Fragment of a carved wooden panel

This fragment of a wooden panel is from a house in Blyth's Close in Edinburgh, which is thought to have been occupied by Mary of Guise between 1542 and 1554. The panel dates from the mid 16th century.

The fragment of panel shows bunches of grapes.

Mary of Guise (1515-1560) was the wife of James V and the mother of Mary Queen of Scots. She acted as Governor from 1554 but her pro-French policy resulted in rebellion by Protestant nobles in 1559.
