Faith Hope Charity Religious Icon Textile Stump Work Needlework Art

Lovely old textile needlework religious art, an Icon of Faith Hope Charity, with angels. This features a background of faded purple velveteen on which are mounted the beautiful gold and silver thread cross, at least we think this is of tiny threads mounted side by side and not gold or silver fabric, hard to tell without causing damage. The entire piece is embellished with sequins, beads and gold metal tiny cords, etc. On each upper corner a decoupage style angel face. We rarely find these, and this one is in very good condition with some fading of the velveteen and a little darkening on some edges of the silver and gold threads. It measures 9 & 1/2" by 11 & 1/4". The cross and all the center emblems plus the angel wings are all padded under the threads, similar to stump work. The piece is mounted and probably even created on a stiff board like material, we show a photo of the back with the old paper covering worn away as you can see some stitches.
