Large Antique Petit Point Needlework Tapestry

This may look like a woven tapestry from a distance, but look closely and you will see it's actually a very finely worked petit point embroidery. The entire piece is done in tiny petit point stitches, not just the faces as you often see. The embroidery depicts two people in a desert landscape. This is a large piece with an overall measurement of about 25" x 31". It's housed in an 1860's walnut frame, but I think the embroidery is a bit earlier. Probably 1850's. The colors have mellowed with time to an attractive soft palette. Both frame and embroidery are in nice condition.
