Lace and Turkey Red Embroidered "God Is Merciful"
SALE! Now $45.00 Includes shipping and handling

This symbolic piece was most likely made at home by a very skilled embroideress. The stylized lotus and passion flower designs are indicative of the arts and crafts era. The padded ancient lettering in German translates to "He is merciful" or "God is Merciful". Notice the turkey red monogram under the lace at the bottom. Over the years,the turkey red has faded to a softer shade but is still stunning. The wide border of beautiful Valenciennes lace, measuring 1 3/4" wide, was obviously added later. The overall measurement is 17 1/2" X 16 1/2". Perfect for a pillow top! The condition is excellent, now washed and ironed. From Switzerland. Circa 1900.
