This is a stunning hand embroidered woolwork tapestry panel consisting of a central panel of mixed flowers including roses, lilies, tulips and anenomes on a beige ground. This in turn is surrounded by a border of roses, rosebuds and foliage on a black ground with four squares, one to each corner. This lovely woolwork tapestry has been made in one piece and it is in excellent condition with no damage other than a small mark (see photo) to the beige area of the panel. This is not backed but the canvas has been folded over very neatly and stitched in place. There is an inked series of numbers and initials to one corner (see photo) which I suspect is the maker of this remarkable creation. The panel measures 92cm wide by 182cm long (36" x 71.5"). It weighs just under 2kgs. A wonderful piece of craftsmanship which is looking for another careful and appreciative owner. This could be either hung on the wall or displayed as a rug in an area with low or no footfall. UK P&P £6.55 International P&P £23.25
