You are looking at a stunning & ornate Victorian beaded & wool needlepoint long runner, which is in mint condition.
The beads, which glisten, are mainly white, clear & different shades of silver, gray, clear beads, white, black & gold, giving a nice sparkly effect in the light. The background is done in black wool needlepoint, with red, mint green, gray & rust needlepoint in the center portion.
This piece is in excellent/mint condition with no bald areas or missing stitches. This was superbly hand stitched.
The backing is plain tan linen (which may have been added later), and features a 2 ½” wide rod pocket at each end so it can be hung on a wall. It could also be used as a bolster pillow; just open a bit of a seam and insert fiber fill.
This may have been made originally to use on a long stool or as a runner.
It is approx. 46" x 12".
No matter what you decide to use it for, you will absolutely love it; it is outstanding in every way.
