St Nicholas Orthodox Icon textile Needlework Stump Work Religious Art

Lovely old textile needlework religious art, an Icon in the Orthodox style, with Saint Nicholas in the center and name above in Greek. This features a background of faded purple velveteen on which are mounted the beautiful gold and silver tiny threads mounted side by side or gold or silver fabric, hard to tell without causing damage. The entire piece is embellished with sequins, beads and gold metal tiny cords, etc. We rarely find these, and this one is in very good condition with some fading of the velveteen. It measures 9 & 3/4" by 11 & 1/2". The figure and all decorations 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 old paper covering on the back, the other piece we have for sale similar to this has paper worn away revealing stitches through the stiff material.
