An Early 19th C Silver Work Embroidery on Silk With Contemporary Perspex Frame

- +

An exceptionally pretty and beautifully trashed embroidered silk has been mounted in a high quality contemporary perspex frame.  The raised silver work embroidery depicts a pair of central birds surrounded by butterflies and dragonflies.  Each corner is decorated with a large flower and tassel.  We have deliberately left this piece unrestored feeling that its delicate beauty is part of its story.

Newly framed.
