This is a simply WONDERFUL silkwork 'painting' of a lady and her favourite dog - who of course is looking adoringly up at her.
Hand embroidered - this little masterpiece must have taken literally months to complete. And probably was embroidered by the lady herself!

This is in excellent condition, too often, these little works of art have been exposed to the sun, but this has not, so its colours remain vibrant . The painted sky is still a gorgeous blue, the little dogs sopts are still brown, his mistresses cape still deep rose and cream.

The frame has suffered somewhat, in that as is almost always the case, some of the gesso beading has come off and similarly there are a few areas of gesso missing on the main framework. Take a look at the image for full details.

The hand embroidery is set in an églomisé glass mount with a textured, probably gesso, gold surround which is surmounted by the frame.

The oval window of the embroidery is 5 1/4 by 7 3/4 inches

The frame is 12 1/2 inches by 10 inches.
