A clever way to ensure the survival of a damaged 1830s purse/needlecase etui is to frame it. This late Georgian framed example is just one half of one such needlecase etui. We see a beautiful arrangement of beadwork flowers embroidered onto a green silk ground. A meandering border of green silk embroidered foliage frames this delight. To the very edge we see clear glass beads. This ancient survivor has been later mounted on to linen canvas and framed behind glass in an antique circa 1800 stained pine Hogarth frame. This divine combination is now ready to hang. This is one of a pair, each retailed separately...see last image.
Size: Framed 6.25" by 4.75". Actual etui size 4.25" by 3".
Condition: As mentioned this is ONE half of a needlecase etui. The yellow flower has a petal missing (approx 6 beads). The frame has surface wear commensurate with its vast age. Please excuse any studio light reflections on the glass.
This is a gorgeous little picture that will become a firm favorite. It works so well with so many of your other antiques, you will be spoilt for choice for display ideas.
