Amazing Handsewn 1930s Embroidery (tx712)

This is one piece which has almost taken our breath away! It is a large, 1930s hand embroidered textile with the most incredibly beautiful, colourful, complex and detailed design we have ever seen. It is worked on linen and depicts a truly stunning tableau of a 1930s cottage and superbly abundant garden, with pond, trees, butterflies, rose arbor, paths, grass and magnificent peacocks. The work involved in creating this textile masterpiece is beyond belief. The rich and colourful silken threads add to the depth of the detail and it is hard to draw one's gaze away from this exceptional piece of work. It is finished with a forest green border. Perfect for framing and displaying above a bed or over a fireplace where you can view it often and appreciate its unique beauty. Perhaps it could be turned into a long cushion for the back of a chaise longue or four-poster bed.

Exactly how many hours of thoughtful and dedicated hand embroidery have gone into this piece will never be known but its supreme beauty lives on many decades later.

The piece is approximately 53" wide by 16" deep. Condition is superb for its age; we noted a small watermark and a mark on an unstitched area of the linen and slight discolouration of the linen at edges. There are some tiny pin-dot size marks around the edge on the linen where it was perhaps once fixed. A handful of the threads have loosened or may be missing - quite minor and only noticeable under close scrutiny. A few of the green edge stitches have come adrift.
