The stitches on this large and very fine old needlework tapestry are tiny. As you can see based on the size of the panel and the image we've shown where a ruler lets you count the tiny stitches would tell you the entire surface is about petitpoint size and those in the little angels and the skin of the other figure are super micro in size.
A very fine example of early 1800s needlework, and of women's art of that time. Mostly relegated to the needle arts and not accepted in fine art genre such as painting and sculpture, women's arts come to us through time as needle arts. I suppose it's part of what draws me to them.This one is also extra large, very well preserved and ready to hang. Very good to excellent, no torn or ripped spots, no holes. I see no stitch loss to moths or similar and the wool and silk yarns retain most of the original color (as you can evaluate by looking at the stitches from backside where it hasn't been exposed to light's fading tendency). On a very old wood stretcher and framed in a simple frame you might wish to replace (or not).
Measurements are noted on our images, and it is 33" x 26.5" and 1.5" in depth overall in frame with an aperture showing 31" x 25.25 of embroidery showing and more of the canvas overlapping the stretching frame, visible from back view.
