Stunning antique handmade needlepoint tapestry with a colorful parrot sitting amidst rose blossoms. It has a black background. It dates to 1920's.
Has hand writing on the back that reads: From Ruth Edwards. Handmade by Minnie Garnis about 1925.
The tapestry itself is in a very good condition, considering its age. It has slight discoloration which is only visible in bright light which makes the black background look more of a dark brown. The back lining has a tear in the silk fabric, which can probably be repaired with fabric glue (see photos for details). There is also a small worn out spot on the very edge of the tapestry on one of the sides. The true colors are actually darker than shown, but please consider differences in monitor colors.It would look stunning as part of any decor.
