A pair of silk work pictures, presumed Georgian, said to be depicting nursery rhymes. One shows a lady feeding hens, the other a lady at a spinning wheel. Both with lovely detail: the seeds falling to the ground, the birds in the sky, the foliage of the trees in the hen picture, and the cat at the lady's feet, the house, the garden, etc. In the spinning wheel picture. Neither picture is in a perfect condition, but both are most attractive with lovely strong colours. Size: 43cms x 35cms, and 40cms x 34cms - the spinning lady being the slightly larger of the two.

Condition: The frames are not matching, but both with black and gilt painted glass. The frame of the Lady feeding hens has slight loss bottom left, but both frames attractive.

The backing silk on the hen embroidery has splits near and above the church as can be seen in the photos. The spinning lady has no tears, etc. Possibly some water damage behind her, maybe in the painting of the silk (the trees and thread of the spinning wheel are painted black) - I can't quite work it out.

The thread colours in both the pictures are lovely and strong. Two very attractive fabric pictures. I will tape over the glass in case of breakage, using masking tape, unless instructed otherwise, in which case it will be at the recipient's risk.

I will use plenty of bubblewrap, etc. I have other embroideries, and antique items - maps. Please see my other items. The item "Pair Georgian Silkwork Pictures Nursery Rhymes Fabric Embroidery Antique Sampler" is in sale since Tuesday, March 13, 2018.
