Antique 18th C Stumpwork, Raised Work Border, Valance
A stunning, large 18th C. Border piece, heavily embroidered with silk and metal thread and wonderful raised or stump work, some scroll pieces being 7 mm high in places. Acquired in France, A beautiful combination of subtly rendered flowers, strawberries and scroll work. It could well be French work, or possibly Italian. In remarkably good condition with just a bit of wear on the silk ground cloth, but no shattering, splitting or stitch loss that I've been able to find. There are a couple of old wax drops, that's it! It must have been very well taken care of all these years. Large enough to make a gorgeous valance. 128 x 30 cms / 50.5" x 11.5".
