You are looking at a gorgeous old French hand beaded wreath/wall hanging, which has never been used-it's new "old" stock from France, which still retains the old hang tag.
I have heard a couple stories about these wreaths; 1. They were made by the sisters in the French convents 2). They were made my prison inmates. My guess they were made by the sisters, but that's my personal opinion. I'm not sure which story is correct, but regardless of who made them, this one is spectacular.
The shape of this piece is gorgeous and striking, not to mention the beautiful color of the beadwork: pink, lavender, purple, plum white & gray. The stems and the metal back are wrapped in a plum/purple silky thread.
The center features a beaded floral spray with leaves; there are five beaded floral stems with leaves and five beaded stems with leaves only.
The approximate dimensions are: 37" long, 26" wide & 2" deep for the frame only.
The condition is superb, with no flaws to note.
This is truly a work of art which will certainly enhance any room; the new owner will absolutely love it.
