Collection of Antique English Jacobean Embroidered Slips
Dating from early 17th Century
Depicting Elizabethan Flowers, Strawberry Bush, Tiger, Birds Caterpillars and Snails beautifully hand embroidered in coloured wool and silk , slightly raised / three dimensional stump work.
Salvaged from a Jacobean Bed Hanging circa 1610
Appliqued to a later antique cream linen ground
Mounted in an antique hardwood frame behind a glass cover
The slips are well preserved and is in good antique condition considering they are approx Four Hundred years old. Un faded and in my opinion the most sought after colour pallet, as seen on many magnificent Elizabethan needlework boxes, pillows and framed pictures.
I am astonished to have been fortunate enough to acquire an entire private estate collection. All from the same hanging.
Advanced collectors will know just how rare these slips are. Usually only seen in Historic English House collections and Museums. In my opinion no textile collection is complete without one.
SIZE Frame is 17 inches wide x 13.5 inches high
