Fabulous rare late 1800's Victorian Framed Hand Painted and Embroidered Tapestry 6 1/2" x 7 1/4" . This type of work was done to teach girls the art of needlework in Victorian Days. The scene features a couple sitting among trees and flowers with a basket. The lady is picking flowers probably to put in the basket. The background, foreground and couple are delicately hand painted in oil or watercolor on the canvas. They are not embroidered. The trees and flowers are embroidered with thread stitches. I believe the glass frame and oval black mat are original to the piece. I did open the back paper to inspect the fabric.The mat has a couple of nicks. Over all very good condition. No signature. Absolutely beautiful!
