A stunning late 18th century silk work in period gilded oval frame. A hand embroidered work in muted colours, as appropriate for the memento mori theme.....

Would have taken a young Georgian woman many hours to complete. Depicts a lady in mourning, stood beneath a tree, looking wistfully at a stone monument, with an urn on top. Very nicely done with raised greenery in the form of the tree, grass and shrubbery around the monument.

Mounted and framed under glass in a decorative oval wooden frame, the top heavily gilded in a bloomed gold colour. In good antique condition commensurate with great age (please hover cursor over photos to see close up detail of silk); glass has a very small circular flaw.

Measurements: frame is 12.75" by 10.5". Please view all 11 photos provided which give a clear, accurate representation of the item on offer and its condition.
