Outstanding silk needlework of Saint Joseph holding Baby Jesus shown in a wood frame. The back of the picture frame does not have a cover. One can see the light from back of wood frame. The workmanship of the needlework is excellent. There is a little wear of the gold paint on two of the corners and a small chip of the gesso part of the decoration. These did not come up in the photograph. The matt is a natural linen fabric. There is soil on the bottom and a few inches up one side on the matt as seen in photograph. The width of the bottom of the frame has dark lines as seen in photograph. The lines are not noticeable when hung on wall. This is a lovely vintage frame with minor issues. The is a no glare glass protecting the needlework. This was obtained from a church.
