Antique 19th century American Victorian needlepoint picture in oval dark walnut frame, measuring 22" by 19". This was acquired recently from a local Santa Monica estate that was like "New England West---filled with eastern Americana and furnishings. The piece appears to date to about the third quarter of the 19th century, maybe to 1890 at the latest. Note the wood peg style construction of the frame. Condition is clean overall though there do appear to be a few old small discolored areas, and I think some brown "spots" are actually on the inside of the glass. The minor flaws are overcome by the fine design and execution.
