This is a delightful antique silkwork embroidery dating to the turn of 18th and 19th centuries.
It isEnglishin origin and would either date to the reign of William IV or the George III.
The work is a depiction of Christian interest - being biblical subjects, presumably, the figures of Mary, Joseph and Jesus, with a Donkey.
Antique textiles are particularly special due to their fragility and the social history or 'herstory' that is behind them. In all likelihood this piece would have been created by a young lady as an accomplishment and 'sensible' recreational activity to keep her focused on 'ladylike' pursuits.It is in fair condition for its great age and still has some good colouring - and is clearly a quality work, but the material does have browning and wear and several tears and pulls. See photographs. It remains well housed in what appears to be its original frame - there may be marks but no breakages to speak of.
It measures 23 inches by 19 inches making it a substantial wall hanging.Whilst I feel that I have set a fair price, offers are more than welcome as I would love for it to find a nice new home.
