Please scroll down for lots of photos!
This is a marvellousGeorgian silk on silk embroidery infading condition, well framed and glazed inits originalperiod gilt frame with verre eglomise. Dating from around 1800 or so. Theyhavepainted silk faces.
The subject matter is unusual, a lady has a small animal which is black and white on a lead - looks rather mor cat-like than a dog. Behind her is a black male servant with a magnificent black feather plumed hat and he is holding a large striped parasol. There is a strange house with bells hanging from the roof.To the right is a pagoda. It is all very intriguing. The painted silk is fragile and has holed around the figures and the tree but the frame holds it all in place.
Theframe measures18 inches wideby14 inches, embroidery is slightly smaller. This is too large for the post office and so will go by courier, hence the high shipping price.
Always happy to combine shipping, I charge actual postal costs.
