Lovely old needlepoint picture of a couple resting on a riverbank with recumbent sheep. The piece is farmed in a circa 1920s frame with reverse painted liner. The age of the needlepoint is unknown, but I'd estimate it to be at least as old as the frame and probably older. The frame is in excellent condition with a few spots of wear, the reverse painting shows some separation from the glass around the edges which is not uncommon for pieces like this - nearly 100 years old. Measures 8.25" by 10.25" overall with the sight size of the work being 5.25" by 7". The colors of the stitchery are pleasantly mellowed with age which also makes me think this piece might have been older when framed. Not faded, no stains or damage. The threads look like silk to me. Not examined out of the framing. A nice old piece and ready to hang & enjoy.
