19th C. Silk Needlework
This outstanding early needlework is expertly hand stitched of silk thread on a silk ground, done in gray, brown, and black tones. It depicts a lake or inlet with hills in the background, a man and woman conversing in the right foreground, and a young boy and his dog playing in the left foreground. There is such fine detail to every aspect of this piece. It housed in a period silver gilt frame and professionally done with acid free materials. A fabulous piece! Measuring 17" wide by 14 1/2" tall (with frame).
