A Stunning & Superb Antique Victorian Beadwork Embroidery-angel,children & Owl.:
I can truly say that in my opinion this is one of the most beautiful Beadwork pieces that I have ever seen or sold.
This is an Antique Victorian Beadwork Embroidery Shield Shaped Panel that dates I believe to around 1880.
It depicts an Angel carrying two childrenin her arms, with anOwl in flight to the right hand side.
The Beadwork is to the entire panel with only the brown areas being embroidered in wool.
The Embroidery has been backed with brown silk, andhas alongthe top edge a number of hooks.
The Panelhas somebraid along the top edge which hangs down the sides-this needs re-attaching on the right hand side of the top.
The braid ends with two large Beadwork tassels on each side.
The Panel measures approximately22.5 inches (plus the Beadwork fringing measuring another 3 inches) x19.25 inches (plus the Beadwork fringing measuring another 0.75 inches on each side)
PLEASE NOTE THAT FOR OVERSEAS POSTING I SHALL HAVE TO LOOSELY ROLL THE PANEL IN ORDER TO KEEP POSTAL COSTS DOWN, AS IF WRAPPED FLAT THE POSTAGE WILL
BE HIGH DUE TO THE SIZE.
A truly glorious addition to any home or Beadwork Embroidery collection.
It weighs approximately 1.140 kgs.
Any minor signs of wear, such as some bead loss to the fringing,are commensurate with age and use.
The Panel itself has the most minimal Bead loss (in fact I have struggled to find any missing beads).
