Stella Rubin Antique Quilts and Decorative Arts
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.
