I love the old needlepoints, needlework and tapestry items. And any fine Victorian or Georgian lady would have been well trained in the arts of the needle, stitchery from an early age. This was 'acceptable' women's art, and so they have special significance coming forward to today, as the relegated and accepted manner in which a woman could express her creativity in a world of male-dominated fine arts. And some of the old ones are truly works of art. This one is charming, a delightful subject and beautifully crafted and preserved. The needlepoint stitches are small, perfectly done. The openwork canvas is visible in background, and only the figures and the scenery is stitched. Framed in the old original gilded wood frame, it's ready to be hung and enjoyed in your own home. RARE to find dogs, as they are the most popular themes in these old needleworks. I'm sure this one will not last long in our open shop.

Very good condition for age and type. You can see in our images that there are a couple of disruptions in the canvas, showing up as slight darkened spots or shading in the open canvas work. It is not perfect, after all, but it still has all its considerable charm. The frame is, I'm quite sure, original to this panel and both date c. 1820-50. Ready to hang, and protected under glass. A really lovely old panel, slightly imperfect.
