No reproduction without prior written consent.We'll be sending out sale notices and special deals to our'Favorites' customers. A magnificent and very large needlework Masterpiece, this one has been removed from a frame, I'm sure. It's ready to be framed again and hung in your Victorian or English Manor home, or just center your collection of beloved "women's art". A romance scene, we see a young man coaxing a pretty maiden to amour. The iconography tells us she is still a virgin (the jug is not broken, her purse remains gathered closed), and she is she or turning away from his advances.
A lesson, a sampler, this one tells us so much about the life of a late Georgian or early Victorian girl, and reminds her, surely hanging in her room, of what is expected of her in retaining her virtue. Charming theme; a very dainty stitch, entire done by hand, with added outer border of flowers and the text, "The Last Appeal" worded across the bottom. It's English in origin, very early 1800s.Stitches are tiny, more petitpoint than needlepoint. One tiny stitch at a time, imagine how long it would take to complete this. Likely done by a girl aged 10-14 or so. Very good to excellent condition for age and type.
Tiny stitches on old linen warp, has been framed and hung. It is a bit fragile to use as a pillow top and I do not advise it. It should be framed again for display. It shows slightly out of sharp rectangle as it lies relaxed, but it very easily pulls to perfect rectangle for your framing. The outer 3 or more border is worked separately and sewn to the picture center (view image of backside).
And I'm not sure how our photos show it slightly different in coloration, but it is closest to the large full image - warm palette, very pretty. In final image I've draped it across a loveseat at home so you can see how large it truly is. One image shows a measuring tape so you can see how small the stitches are.As noted, not for a pillow or bolster, it wouldn't hold up. I find one of two small areas where there's a separation between rows of stitches, but only if one pulls. It will be gorgeous and invisible, once framed under glass.
