Very Fine 19c Early Victorian Playful Spaniel Antique Needlepoint Sampler For Sale
Very Fine 19c Early Victorian PLAYFUL SPANIEL Antique Needlepoint Sampler
PLEASE SUPER SIZE PHOTOS FOR CONDITION AND BEST VIEWS
A superb early Victorian, circa 1840's, needlepoint portrait of a playful spaniel. The brown and white dog is crouching in a playful pose against a vivid blue background. The entire canvas is fully and tightly stitched, unusual for this type of woolwork portrait. The entire work is exquisitely done, very visual and housed in its original eye-catching frame. The woolwork is in excellent antique condition and ready to display. Quite large and heavy, the total framed size measures a bit over 15.5" x 18.75". It is housed behind old glass in its original period rosewood veneer frame with wide ripple gilt liner. The viewing area or sight size of the woolwork measures ~9" x 12.25". The rosewood veneer frame is very wide (about 2.75") and is vividly figured; it is in good sturdy condition with a lovely patina and the usual minor losses, dings, etc. The needlepoint is still mounted on its original stretcher and is in untouched condition (except for minor surface cleaning). I've collected these needlework pictures for many years and this is certainly one of the finest. Incredibly charming, it will always bring a smile! Thanks for looking and don't hesitate to email with any questions.
