A really beautiful antique Victorian hand-stitched tapestry and beadwork panel. This comes in beautiful colours, with a cream tapestry background, worked in a thick silk like thread. Around the edge is a floral and geometric beadwork detail, worked in grey, white and black micro glass beads.The centre of the panel has a stunning floral design worked in very fine needlepoint petit point work, worked in a mixture of what appear to be silk and chenille threads. The canvas size is 23 x 23 inches.
The stitched section measures 17 x 17 inches. This is a true antique piece and has been removed from a fire screen.
There is some fading to the woolwork, as you would expect from a piece of this age. The piece did have a black silk edging/mounting, but this has been removed as deteriorated. There are still slight signs on the extreme edge.There has also been some very slight bead loss, but because of the design it is difficult to see where this is. Will be posted on a cardboard tube, carefully rolled and wrapped in bubble wrap. From a smoke free home.
