This delightful tent stitch woolwork picture was produced in England during the mid 19th century, 1860 period. The needlework depicts a tortoiseshell cat or kitten playing with a yarn of wool upon a blue pillow. Cat needlepoints are far more scarce than their canine friends. This charming example is housed behind old glass in a period correct birds eye maple wood frame with a gilt slip.
This is such a decorative needlework, the perfect piece for anyone looking for the folk art look. It is the ideal item for a cat lover.
