Early 19th Century Dog Needlework Needlepoint Picture Lovely Original Birds Eye Maple Frame Circa 1840
This is a wonderfully complete and all original package from the second quarter of the nineteenth century. The gros point woolwork needlepoint is just magnificent as it has retained its vibrant coloring. The recumbent spaniel dog with silk stitched collar lies among grass with stylized white clouds and blue shy behind. This early, slightly naive geometric styling has a gorgeous folk art feel to it. We just adore the salmon pink border. Housed within his original gilt slip under old bubbled glass and within original birds eye maple frame....this is a honey and a firm favorite of ours.
Size: Frame 18.25" by 16", visible needlework 13" by 9.75".
Condition: We have not opened this needlework picture, only taping the rear as the backing paper was very torn allowing one to push fingers through to the woolwork if not careful..Upon close inspection you will see very old debris, dust and an old dead spider caught under the old glass, just part of its history. There are approx 8 missing stitches in total, nothing serious or even very noticeable but mentioned for accuracy. The original maple veneered frame is very dry, perhaps displayed above an open fire.
This is a fantastic little 19th century pooch just waiting to settle in his new home.
