Tropical Wading Birds and Water Lilies Embroidered Linen
A colorful tropical paradise is hand embroidered on this linen piece which is fringed on three sides. There are cattails, a butterfly, water with water lily blossoms and pads, a pair of wading birds, maybe flamingoes, cranes or herons, and a flying bird above the delicate tree tops, all framed in an openwork drawn thread border. Colors include red, pink, brown, gold, taupe, maroon and soft green. The fabric is a woven slightly textured and shiny, so perhaps a rayon linen blend. Measures 20” x 28” with additional 3” fringe on three sides. In excellent vintage condition with no wear or holes. Clean, washed and ironed. Displays beautifully.
