EXQUISITE ANTIQUE FRENCH NEEDLEWORK PETIT POINTCHURCH STAINED GLASS WINDOW & FLOWERS c1880
Please scroll down for more pictures.
Thisis an exquisite large framed needlepoint picture thatwas once hung in a church.
It dates from the 1880s and is stunning display in rich warm colours.
The arch shaped frame is dark with age, sadly it has lost one leaf of its Fleur de Lys cartouche but this could be restored if required. It does not detract from the display.
The needlework petit point is delicieux. It depicts a church stained glass window with a beautiful flower display at the base.
The window is superbly detailed and the top panes of glass carry angels and the figures of the Count and Countess who had commissioned the window for the church.
The outer display is a rich array of burgundy and buff foliage and acanthus leaf scrolls.
I have not cleaned the frame and have left it just as I found it. The wood will polish as required.
There is no deterioration to any of the needle point fibres and I can find just one area of damage in the flowers but again it does not detract.
The frame measures:
Height 29.5" (75cms)
Base diameter 20.75" (43cms)
Depth 1.25" (3cms)
A stunning and unique framed treasure from the 19th century.
