A really wonderful antique embroidery of a pheasant with roses & other flowers. The pheasant & main blooms are worked in raised'plushwork', giving it a lovely, 3-dimensional effect. The remaining parts of the design are worked in a combination of beads & woolwork. The background is cream embroidery.

The reverse is lined with green satin / taffeta stripe fabric. This lining is detached in places & there is a lovely piece of striped ticking between the embroidery & the lining. The cord trim around the edge is also partially detached. In very good condition for its age. There are a couple of places with a moth nibble to the plush embroidery on the roses.

This is not too obvious in real life. The colours are still vibrant. I think the pheasant probably had a glass bead eye originally, which would be quite a simple thing to replace if desired. It looks fine as it is though. It is beautiful but it does look old & not new.

It is absolutely NOT washable! 16 1/2" x 17 1/2". This is a fixed price listing. Lower offers will not be accepted.
