A lovely antique silk embroidered image of autumn trees and water, this "painting" measures 10 3/4" x 14" sight with the frame at 16" x 19 3/4".
The construction appears to be a support of silk floss backed onto sturdy cotton with the stitches worked over the floss. Altogether an unusual and arresting example of Chinese textile imagery.
Condition: embroidery with no damage, restoration or repair that we can spot; the board comprising the back of the frame is split slightly, some loss and damage to backing paper. Please see photo. The gilt trim on the front of the frame is loose and needs glueing back. As always with conservation, we leave this to the buyer to do as they prefer.
Texas buyers please note that sales tax will be collected either by Ruby Lane or by us.
