Early 19thc Berlin Woolwork Petitpoint C1830, Evocative Domestic Scene:
EARLY 19thc BERLIN WOOLWORK PETITPOINT c1830, EVOCATIVE DOMESTIC SCENE
This is a beautiful antique early 19th century Berlin woolwork panel, it is an early design daing to about 1830s when Berlin woolwork began to become popular in England. It is entirely worked in very delicate petitp[oint, another sign of its early origen.
It measures about 17.5" by 15.25" with the corners cut off - it was designed to go in a fancy frame - or 44 cms by 39 cms. It is mounted on a wooden frame with a silk backing that is all but shredded but lovely none-the-less. It weighs about 550g.
The condition is good but not perfect, the colours are quite muted but wonderful with a few little missing stitches peppering the panel, see closeups. A very evocative and top quality piece that would frame up beautifully. Thank you for looking.

Welcome to Morgaine Le Fay Antique Textiles, a treasure trove of antique and vintage textiles maintaine by vanye90. I am an obsessive collector of beautiful fabric and other textiles, I love pattern, colour and texture, and this is reflected in the stock I buy. I love the 'shabby chic' look where the patina of age and use are celebrated, as well as the more utilitarian Shaker style and the pretty country cottage look, and always carry stock that would work well with these types of interiors. I source antique fabrics, linens, lace, embroideries, passementerie trims, ribbons, gold and silver metal threads and much much more. I have a fondness for French textiles, and you will find plenty here. I also look out for wonderful antique and vintage curtains, they have so much more character than newly bought ones. I am always more than happy to put together project packs for customers containing certain types of fabric or haberdashery, for example antique French tickings, florals etc, or different types of ribbon/lace. If you are on the look-out for anything specific, why not contact me, I may be able to help. I constantly update my listings, adding a few more things most days, so please save me to your favourite seller list, and check back often, I may have just what you are looking for! Please note that most of my items are antique or vintage, and show signs of age as noted on the listings. they will not look pristine and new, if this is what you are looking for, my listings may not be what you are looking for. I am always mote than happy to combine postage for multiple items where possible, this can often lead to a substantial reduction. Thank you for taking the time to read this, vanye90.
