I was very tempted to keep this as it is a very striking item and will be superb framed.

I know nothing of heraldry, although I know there are experts in the field.

But I do know about embroidery. To me, this appears to be Regency - late 18th or early 19th Century and Georgian. I could be wrong but the embroidery all points to this period of time.

So, we have a crown and below it a shield, all mounted onto black velvet. Note that close up's of antique velvet are always poor due to micro fibres, but the velvet is actually in very good antique condition.

The crown and parts of the shield, all show typical Regency embroidery, in the form of 'purls' of probably silver thread, with spangles [early sequins] and beads of some kind.

All of these are blackened because the small piece has not been kept behind glass. They could even be gold thread, but it would need to be professionally cleaned to be sure.

The inside of the crown is chenille embroidery, a great favourite in the late 18th Century and just into the early 19th. It was out of fashion by the 1830's. The chenille thread is like a long tiny caterpillar in silk! Thus we have a gold coloured texture to the crown.

The shield is divided into sections, and I think that the upper section has background embroidery in black silk thread. Black always has been one of the most volatile dye colours, and there is quite a lot of disintegration of the thread here. But with blue in the background, this is not detrimental in my opinion.

So then we have the main section which has background embroidery in blue - I need to mention that the blue is gorgeous! Far richer that shown on my photo's and the duck egg blue that can only be early. This section is in good condition.

The final section shows an anchor, with a background of silver thread embroidery. There is moderate wear to the silver thread here, but not much.

The whole piece has then been mounted onto another velvet piece, which I was eager to remove, but the edge stitching is so much a part of the piece I just couldn't do it! I would so love to see the back of the work though. I leave it up to you!

Both the crown and the shield have been padded and stand proud of the surface.

Even without cleaning to the metal threads, I think this is a very handsome piece and deserves a special place in a frame by someone who will really appreciate it.

But if it were professionally cleaned, it would be spectacular! I am quite sure this is possible but not for an amateur.

Very small, it measures just 6" x 3.5". The backing velvet is slightly larger, I cut it neatly because it had very unpleasant nail holes all around from framing in the past.

A beautifully embroidered piece.

If you disagree with my analysis of the date of this embroidery, I am more than happy to refund in full when the item is quickly returned in the same condition as sent.

Please do take a look in my shop if you have the time!
