A beautiful panel of a once larger piece that has been saved and framed behind old glass in a pretty period Mahogany frame. This stunning little panel originated from the Quebec region of Canada circa 1870. Made by the woodlands people for the European souvenir market, it was most likely the central panel of a tray (see a moosehair version at the Mccord Museum, ref: M 18510). The indigenous wild flower and fruits/ seed pods are so pretty all worked in colored glass beads stitch on to a birch bark ground

Condition: Some bead loss to the central pink and white flower, clearly seen in our images.
A lovely little natural/textile treasure from a bygone age.
