For sale is a charming English c. 1860's petit point needlework depiction of the young Jesus and the Lamb of God, with a cross in the background. There is a rose bush behind Jesus, and some rocks and plants in the foreground. It is completed in wool on gauze, and is housed in what appears to be the original rosewood frame that has a gold gilt liner. There is a metal loop hanger at the top. The piece measures about 11 1/4" x 9 1/4" including the frame, with the needlework only measuring about 8" x 6". Condition is very nice, especially for a piece of this age, with minor expected wear to the frame, but no chips, cracks or repairs. The gauze has very minor discoloration with a couple of very small areas of damage to the left side of the top edge. Please look carefully at the pictures as they are an important part of the description, and be sure to ask any questions. What a sweet addition to your cottage decor!
