A wonderfully talented needlework from the late Georgian period, circa 1800. This finely executed European silk needlework upon laid paper includes delicate silk floss embroidered detailing to the costumes and subtle watercolor embellishment for their features and forest background....we adore her shoes. Housed within a period lemon gilt frame that comes complete with the old bubbled glass; this piece will not disappoint.
Size: Frame 11.5 inch by 9.5 inch by 1.25 inch. Visible embroidery depiction 9 inch by 7 inch.
Condition: Minor foxing to the old laid paper ground. Some wear to each corner of the paper and two small holes seen to the paper edge at 3 and 9 o'clock, indicating that this piece was perhaps attached in an album. Refreshed backing paper and suspension hanger. The frame has a beautiful coloring and natural patina..
