The partial remainder of a framer's card or label on the backing helps us determine this late 1700s to early 1800s silk embroidery is of French origin, though we see similar embroidery from UK and some other European countries, too. Always appealing, they represent the accepted role of creative energy and 'women's art' of the era. Women were, with very small exception, not permitted the higher arts of sculpture or painting, but they were taught from an early age to do needle arts. These silk embroidery pieces are, essentially, the paintings done by women, but in stitches rather than brush strokes. I find them ultra-appealing and a little sad, as well. Often truly magnificent, as is the case with this visitation themed scene, complete with a magnificent angel.
Very good to excellent for age and type. The open silk and watercolor-painted faces, arms, legs, show some silk deterioration which is, unfortunately, typical of these very old works of needle art. You can see this clearly in our images, I believe, but it bears mention. The frame is the old original, I'm quite sure, though it is true that some of these old silkworks would have had a larger frame and a black lacquered glass mat/glazing. The frame shown seems certainly to be as old as the needlework, however, so we'll assume it is the original. The photo of the piece has a bit of glare on the glass so we've also taken photos of it slightly on angle which distorts the true oval a bit but shows the stitchwork more clearly and colors, too. Isn't it just a true treasure! C. 1770-1820.

Return Policy:
We always honor a 3-day return on our items, and guarantee them to be as described. Money back, less shipping costs, which are not refundable, so ask questions if necessary. We're easy to deal with.


Shipping and Handling Policy:


You are very important! Our fine inventory is very important. And your ranking of our performance is also very important! We wish to keep our 4.9 - 5 star ratings in all categories. Customer satisfaction is paramount with us, so if you're thinking we have not deserved your highest marks, please contact us and allow us to be sure your concerns are completely satisfied before you rank us. We aim for 5-star transactions every day, and depend upon you to tell us directly if we have not yet met that standard for your transaction. Thank you! We most often use USPS for our shipping needs but will be happy to ship by another carrier if you prefer.

We charge only actual postage & insurance, never a handling fee and never for packaging materials. is now requiring that our clients rank us on "shipping". The shipping price, speed and handling are actually under the sole control of the delivering postal agency, not Antiques & Uncommon Treasure so please remember that and leave us high DSR rankings. As always, please also feel free to contact us if you have any problems or concerns, we'll do what we can to ensure a happy and mutually enjoyable transaction.


Insurance has been eliminated as an option by , forcing us sellers to either ship your items without insurance or assume that expense also. We always insure our items BUT, more importantly, pack them extremely well knowing that most are not replacable. Again, damage in transit, while rare in our experience, is due to the postal agency handling and not caused by Antiques & Uncommon Treasure. Please remember that when leaving DSR ratings. Thanks!


Our shipping days are Tuesday and Friday, paid items will be shipped on the first shipping day after payment is recieved (except when special circumstances exist). We prefer to use USPS whenever possible, and require all packages to be insured. If you prefer another method of shipment, please mention it. We charge only actual expense of shipment/insurance, except in the case of larger items which must have special wood crates built. Wood crate charge, when applicable, is a flat $35.00 in addition to actual postage & insurance charges.
