Georgian, circa 1820. 13ins high by 11.5ins wide. Embroidery Picture of a Girl with her Dog. The embroidery is worked in silk, fine wool, cotton and felt, on a felt ground. Colours gold, light brown, copper, yellow and greens.
Picture depicts a landscape scene, with a young woman seated beneath a tree, her dog by her side. Her head and hands are painted on paper. Her clothing is worked in felt.
Framed in an old, oval gilded, gesso frame with glass. Fixed to a wood frame with paper backing.
CONDITION: Good. No holes. No stains. Some stitch losses to tree trunk and dog,
a few broken threads,
two pieces of loose paper and a faint line to the paper running across woman's neck and wrist.
Colours are all good and strong with no noticeable fading. No colour run. Neatly and evenly stretched. Frame showing some wear, but is structurally sound and in our opinion could be hung 'as is'.
