This is a beautiful embroidered piece of linen that has been embroidered with silk thread. The flowers are wild roses with lots of pale green foliage and vines. The centers of the roses are dots of pale yellow. The mat was meant for a picture to be placed at the center in an oval opening that is empty. The mat measures 10 1/2" high by 9 1/2" wide. The oval opening is 5 1/2" high by 3 1/2" wide. There is a very light water mark at the top right of the mat that has been cleaned. The mat is framed in a gold colored wooden frame that measures 14" high by 12" wide. The frame can be displayed on an easel or hung on the wall. The condition is very good.
Note: the picture can be horizontal or vertical. It looks good both ways.
