Lovely 18th century “hairwork” silk embroidered picture, depicting a man with a donkey and dog walking along a riverfront. There are two boats on the river and, on the far bank, two grand houses surrounded by formal parks. The picture is worked in black silks on an ivory silk faille ground.

This elegant embroidered mat may have been for a wall or a table. Remnants of tape on the top lead me to believe it had been hung. The embroidery is silk on very fine cotton or linen. Measurements are 7" square. The break in the tape mentioned above is the only condition apology. American origin; circa 1800.

Fabric is foxed and stained, with one split. But considering its delicacy, it’s a fabulous piece of early school decorative arts. Measures 10 1/2”.

How often do you see a flame stitch mat? This one still has vibrant color. The foundation is a loomed homespun. It has a spider web fringe that is so fine and beautiful. I have taken pictures of the 3 areas of with condition problems. There are two small holes and one larger one. The fringe also is sparse in many areas around the mat. That said this is a rare form of flame stitch and is paper thin and very finely woven. It is mid 1700's and is 6" by 11".
