Needlework query

The PRS has been asked for any thoughts on this piece of needlework. It may well be Arts & Crafts/Pre-Raphaelite; the verse (if it is unclear in the image) is from Spenser’s The Faerie Queene, and Walter Crane illustrated an edition of this in 1894-1896. The panel measures 63 x 29cm (excluding modern frame), and the only labels are for a London framers. There doesn’t appear to be a signature anywhere on the piece. The quality is far beyond the average needlework panels.
