An interesting fragment of Victorian needlework, the somewhat shiny black (chintz, silk?) fragment of an irregular shape, later laid on a dull black linen backing to attempt to match the color, the final result currently round and 12 1/2" diameter, and 19 1/2" on a side in a new square frame (in excellent condition) with clean mat. The design includes a butterfly, daisies, pansies and other flowers, and grasses gone to seed. I am not a specialist in textiles but that is my best take on what I am looking at. Someone thought this worth preserving and they spent money to do so. This was somewhat difficult to photograph due to reflections in the glass. The border between the original fragment and the newer backing is seen in several images.
