This is a wonderful antique tapestry which I picked up at a local auction. It was found hidden in a picture frame with a print over top of it. I did not even know it was there until I brought the frame home and when I lifted the print out, this was tucked in between the back of the print and the back of the picture frame!
The tapestry measures 9 1/2" high by 9" wide. All hand done with cranberry colored woven background with thin lines of chocolate brown woven through as well.
Clear glass seed beads comprise Cross and Stars designs throughout. Two letter are in the center, M and an unreadable letter. The second letter has a few loose glass beads.
The condition of the tapestry is quite good. A few beads are missing in small sections along the outer perimeter (three corners only). Very early piece.
