Antique 19 C Hand Painted Berlin Woolwork Embroidery Pattern Dog / Boy / Parrot For Sale
A delightful antique hand painted Berlin woolwork embroidery pattern dating from around 1840, coloured with gouache or watercolour paints. The design is of a small boy with his pet dog and parrot, playing in a landscape. It bears the name Grunthal and the number 6.
It is in good condition though well-used and the paper has darkened with age. It has been backed with linen for strength and bears the owner's name. It measures 10.75 by 9.25 inches (27.5 by 23.5 cm.)
The photos can be enlarged for more detail.
I guarantee that this is a genuine antique embroidery pattern.
