I bought this truly stunning piece of hand-worked needlepoint from an antiques shop some time ago with the intention of using it as a wall hanging in the guest bedroom.. Then plans changed and so now, sadly, it is time to let it go. Worked in the Aubusson style in subtle shades of green, rose, blue and ochre on an ivory background the date is unknown but most probably vintage.Size: Rectangular 70" x 45.5" approx. On first examination the rug appears perfect but when held up to the light there are a few missing stitches here and there, but they are well concealed and not immediately obvious and in no way detract from the overall appearance.
The canvas has been turned over on the reverse to form an edging and this is coming undone in one corner. Clean and ready for its new owner. Everything I sell comes from a no-smoking household.Please do have a look at my other listings. They will be many and varied over the coming weeks as I'm having a major clear-out and you might be tempted! Collection from the HR6 postcode is also welcomed when social distancing will be strictly observed.
