This charming needlepoint depicts a smiling French courtier dressed in mint/forest green long flap waistcoat with deep cuffs, matching breeches, white silk hose and black shoes holding a letter, standing next to a stalk of sunflowers with an attentive little dog at his feet. They are on a dusky rose hued background. Since the back of the gilt frame is missing two little finish nails, I was able to pry it open easily to photograph the texture of the needlepoint from behind. It seems to consist of fine wool yarn.
Framed Dimensions: Oval 10.75" l x 8.75" wide The needlepoint itself measures 9" tall by 6.75" wide.
