Continental antique silk embroidery fragment (100 x 48cm)

£ 180.00

100 x 48 cm // 3ft 3" x 1ft 7"

At some point the design pattern elements of this textile have been cut and separated taken up from from its original cream silk mount and reset onto another cream satin silk and then embellished with further later green embroidery.  Presumably done to preserve the precious embroidered part whilst the original mount must have been in a state of being perished.

The work is probably Italian but is now in a poor state despite being backed with a cream twill cotton fabric but could be good for an exotic cushion.

* Mid 18th cent and probably re-applied circa 1900
