A delightful pair of miniature Regency era silkwork embroidered pictures in their original lemon gilt circular frames....they really do just glow! This pair ooze Georgian restraint and elegance and are a delight to behold, they would blend with any interior. English in origin this circa 1820 pair are in good sound condition having retained their fresh coloring. Their open floral sprays tied with ribbon are so charming and are of course utterly timeless. This 200 year old pair will certainly add a touch of English country house elegance to any home or Hollywood Regency inspired decor....see last image for gallery wall grouping ideas.
Size: Frame diameter 5.75" by 1" deep. Visible needlework 4" diameter.
Condition: The spray tied with red ribbon has a few teeny little knocks to the edge to be expected with its vast age; its plain woven silk ground just a shade darker than its partner. The spray tied with blue ribbon has an old repair to the circular frame at 2 o'clock, and a small area of gilt Gesso missing at 6 o'clock. There is not any perishing or splitting to the silk in either example; both silkworks are in excellent condition. So rare to find a pair of this small proportion that have remanded together. Don't miss out.......
