Georgian Woolwork Embroidered Picture - Castle by a Lake

Georgian, circa 1820. 18.3ins high, 26ins wide, 2.2ins deep. Georgian Woolwork Embroidered Picture of a Castle by a Lake.

The embroidery is worked in wool on canvas ground, in a variety of stitches.

Pictorial scene depicts a castle by a lake.

Figures in the foreground under a tree.

A boat sails on the lake and there is a boat on the shoreline.

Framed in an old, possibly original rosewood frame with glass.

Mounting: The embroidery is tacked to a wood stretcher frame. Frame backed with chipboard.

 

CONDITION: Good.

No holes. A couple of thread losses in top right corner.

A few slightly loose threads in places.

Colours are slightly faded, but still well defined.

Frame has some wear, but is presentable and could be hung 'as is' in our opinion.
