A stunning, Museum quality, ornate applique from the Georgian times, circa 1830, lavishly embroidered with cream satin stitch and metallic thread on black velvet.
The piece which comes from the same amazing French private collection as my religious lace pieces, etc. is not only visually spectacular, but also very tactile, with its three dimensional cream motifs, and lovely Georgian metallic beads.
It is of course all done by hand and must have taken days to complete! As always with embroideries, the piece is far better in real than as pics have a hard time rendering velvet, relief, etc.
MY DECOR SUGGESTIONS: This rich embroidery can be applied at the back of a jacket, at the front a precious purse, a pillow, a throw, a banner, can be framed, etc..
MEASUREMENTS: Length: 11 3/4". Width: 8 3/4".
CONDITION: Excellent for its age, with only minor wear, loss and yellowing. Normal darkening of the gold thread with time.
The thin edges curl, but this will of course disappear once the piece is again applied on fabric or framed.
The piece will be shipped Registered Airmail (very safe!) including insurance and signature at delivery.
