Twelve Piece Embroidered Birds Flowers and Leaves Parlor Set Crochet Edging Beautiful hand embroidered birds, flowers and leaves embellish this 12 piece set done in heavy satin floss on natural linen. They are done in aqua blue, with yellow filling in the background. Each piece is finished with hand crochet trim. Stitches include satin stitch, French knots (lots of them), stem stitch, blanket stitch and couching. A tour de force of embroidery! There are five larger pieces which have straight top edges and have scalloped bottoms. Each measures 13” across top and 11” long. There are six smaller rectangular pieces in vertical pairs with four birds facing right and four birds facing left. Each measures 7” across by 11 1/2” long. The last piece is horizontal with a rounded bottom and only has flower and leaf. It measures 13” across by 8” long. All are trimmed with hand done cream cotton crochet edging all around. The birds look like wading birds. I think this was an antimacassar set to go on backs and arms of parlor chairs. It could be repurposed in a lot of creative ways. Excellent condition. Clean, washed and ironed. No flaws I can find. Fun for your cottage chic décor.
